Investigators say that two African-American males, one male identified as Jamarques Codling, and another unidentified male, exited the white Nissan and entered the red Durango.

Approximately one minute later, the two African-American males ran from the red Durango and entered the white Nissan. The Nissan attempted to back out of the parking space. Blount exited from the driver's side of the red Durango and was holding a handgun and began chasing after the African-American males.

Investigators say that Blount fired at least 13 rounds into the white Nissan, striking Felder in the back of the head. The white Nissan pulled forward and hit the building in front of it.

Codling then exited the white Nissan, ran toward the red Durango while firing rounds from a handgun in the direction of Blount.

Blount then drove off in the red Durango.

At some point during the altercation, Codling received a gunshot wound and was later pronounced deceased. Blount also received two gunshot wounds during the altercation.

Felder remains in critical condition.

Investigators say that a large bag of marijuana was found in the parking lot.
