How did the shooting happen?
A violent altercation erupted involving Jake, Angelica, and Zachary, leading to a tragic shooting incident. An argument ensued over Angelica’s relationship with Zachary, prompting Jake to brandish a handgun. Angelica attempted to intervene, resulting in Jake forcibly pushing her against a vehicle, causing bruises and marks on her arm and back.
