“What we have gathered so far is that Mr. Nathaniel Lockwood was socializing at a house in the Sandhill Area when he met a friend by the name of Lindon Ramos who asked him for a ride to go to Gardenia Village. As a result both of them got on the motorcycle and Mr. Lockwood drove the motorcycle towards Gardenia Village. Upon reaching Gracie Bank area they noticed that a vehicle was following them. So they stopped to give way to the vehicle and the vehicle stopped at a distance away from them. Thereafter they continued driving and while they passed the vehicle the vehicle continued to follow them as a result the vehicle knocked them from behind causing Mr. Lockwood to lose control of the cycle and then run inside of the bush where they fell down. While on the ground a male came out from the vehicle and fired several shots at Mr. Lockwood causing above mentioned injuries, several gunshot wounds to the chest and stomach area.”
