A third suspect in the case, Jalen Tremaine Crowell, 30, remains at large.

Family told WSOC-TV the father and son were returning home after eating at a restaurant when they were shot.

“I want to know why you went after my nephew and brother,” James Turner said of the shooting. “They were doing nothing wrong. They were leaving the Waffle House minding their own business. Whoever did this is kind of a coward.”
