Police said one round hit Link in the abdomen, but he drove away. However, he did not get far before crashing his Mercedes-Benz, authorities said.
The crash took place about a half-mile from the barbershop Link owned, police said.
Link operated the barbershop for about nine years and people in the neighborhood set up a memorial at the barbershop and called him an asset to the community and a man with a good heart, the Tampa Bay Times stated.
On July 28, McNair walked into the St. Petersburg Police Department and turned himself in to police, authorities said.
Police said McNair faces a second-degree murder charge, but they are still investigating and more charges could be added.
