Several victims, including a three-month-old, were outside the residence talking in the driveway when Branden Truss along with two other male suspects started shooting at them. The victims ran inside the residence and were not injured. One of the female victims, age 19, was in a relationship with Truss.

Officers did not originally find the suspects or shell casings but did find bullet holes in the car.
