Investigators believe the three suspects arrived at the gas station in a stolen red Nissan Altima. Police are not releasing a motive, but said after shooting Turner, the trio fled about two miles away. That’s where police said they set fire to the car, which was reported stolen in August, and then got into a red or burgundy Chevy Tahoe with aftermarket rims. Investigators were able to determine that SUV was registered to Geddis.
Police have not yet determined which one of the suspects pulled the trigger, but all three have murder warrants out for them. Investigators hope surveillance video will help determine that.
