A vehicle backed up during the dispute and hit a gas pump, damaging it along with the back of the vehicle. “The only collision that we have been able to discover so far was the gas pump at the Maverik gas station,” says Lt. Ray Del Greco. APD says that the vehicle that ended up in the area of 2700 Monroe St. NE around 8:45 p.m., shortly after the Maverik shooting, was the vehicle that damaged the gas station pump.
The vehicle then sped away. The driver of the vehicle sustained multiple gunshot wounds and is currently at a hospital in stable condition. The passenger was also shot and died from their injuries.
Police have not released whether the people in the car found on Monroe Street were involved in the fight or stuck in the cross fire.
APD is asking anyone who was at the Maverik around 8:45 p.m. Friday to call 242-COPS. News 13 will provide updates as they become available.
