Police believe Lang was initially driving the vehicle.

The shooting was captured on a nearby security camera, and it shows one of the pedestrians approached the SUV and began talking with someone inside. Two people exited the SUV from the driver’s side during the conversation. The second pedestrian began to approach the SUV but then backed up and began shooting, according to court records.

Judon, seated in the SUV’s front passenger side, retrieved a gun from under the seat, exited and moved to the back of the vehicle where he started shooting, according to court records. One of the pedestrians was shot in the chest, and both ran through the parking lot until the injured man collapsed.

Lang was also hit by gunfire, and Judon apparently suffered lesser injuries, likely from debris, police said.

The SUV started to drive off down College Street, and about a block later Mitchell climbed out of the vehicle and headed back toward the scene of the shootout. Mitchell fired more shots at the man on the ground, missing others in the area, including people behind his target, according to court records.

Mitchell then ran back to the SUV and left. The SUV then drove to Sartori Hospital where Lang was pronounced dead, according to police.
