Based on the preliminary investigation, police said 19-year-old Keonza Scales, another man, and a 17-year-old were driving through the old expo center’s parking lot around 12:15 a.m. on Wednesday, May 31.

Scales allegedly asked the driver to stop after seeing someone he thought he recognized, approached the 22-year-old, and started shooting at him, authorities said.

Officers reported seeing a red Dodge pickup truck without its headlights on leaving the parking lot where the shooting took place.

According to police, they conducted a traffic stop, which is when Scales got out of the truck and ran away. He was taken into custody behind the old Kroger grocery store.

In addition, authorities reportedly found an AR-15 and several handguns inside the pickup.

Officials said Scales has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
