After identifying the individuals involved and examining all evidence, CPS believes the shooting was targeted and that the driver of the Volkswagen Jetta was the intended target. Police said “AMER was the sole occupant of the Chevy Silverado, which was confirmed to be stolen. It is alleged that AMER was the aggressor in this incident by pursuing the Jetta and discharging a firearm before ultimately colliding with Ms. McKenzie’s vehicle.”
