According to a criminal complaint, security footage from the gas station shows a white Dodge Dart pulling into the parking lot with four people inside. The video then shows another man approaching the vehicle and reaching into the passenger compartment of the car before running off with objects in hand.

“Three occupants of the vehicle quickly chase after the man and attack him at the front door of the building. The three hit the man several times with their fists and feet,” the police said in a criminal complaint.

Police said Cramer was walking towards the building at this point, covering one of his hands and putting on his hood. Police said the man on the ground then shot the four people.
