on Wild­mead­ows Street with a sin­gle gun­shot wound to the chest. He was pro­nounced dead on the scene.

Ac­cord­ing to res­i­den­tial sur­veil­lance sys­tems re­trieved by de­tec­tives,

four peo­ple were stand­ing in front of a garage on Wild­mead­ows Street and a group of peo­ple stood ap­prox­i­mately 75 feet away in the mid­dle of the street. Wit­nesses told the de­tec­tives the group of peo­ple stand­ing in the street shot at the oc­cu­pants of the res­i­dence and at least one per­son from in front of the res­i­dence

shot back.

Empty shell cas­ings were found in the street where the one group was stand­ing, and cas­ings were found in front of and in­side the garage of 11243 Wild­mead­ows St.

The vic­tim, Cole, was lo­cated about 250 feet away from the res­i­dence where the in­ci­dent oc­curred, and de­tec­tives re­port it

ap­peared he was run­ning away in the op­po­site di­rec­tion when he was shot and killed.

A wit­ness was in­ter­viewed and told de­tec­tives they wit­nessed John­son al­legedly shoot a hand­gun to­wards the peo­ple who were stand­ing in front of the res­i­dence. Af­ter John­son fin­ished shoot­ing, some­one in front of the

res­i­dence shot back to­wards John­son, shoot­ing the vic­tim in the back as he ran away.

John­son was pos­i­tively iden­ti­fied by a wit­ness fa­mil­iar with him and knew him prior to the shoot­ing, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.

A war­rant for John­son’s ar­rest was is­sued on Oct. 11. He was sub­se­quently ar­rested on Oct. 19 and charged.
