According to the arrest affidavits of Banks and Scott, the two men arrived at 1102 Hollywood Blvd. in a silver Mitsubishi Galant, where they drove down the street with their lights off before turning around, heading back, and firing several shots at people in the parking lot. 

Police arrived and found 9 mm shell casings and a magazine to a 9 mm Smith & Wesson handgun in the street. 

When police responded to a fight at the Hy-Vee parking lot, Banks was reportedly attempting to leave in another vehicle with other passengers, according to the affidavits. Officers made contact, and Banks got out of the vehicle and sat on a curb. Police found a handgun matching the magazine on the floor of the back seat. 

The Galant was found a block away from Hy-Vee with a shell casing matching the gun on the floor of the back seat. Police said in the affidavit the handgun came up as stolen from Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2011. 

Witnesses said they saw Banks firing the weapon during the incident and Scott driving the vehicle, according to the affidavits.
