A witness allegedly told police he saw Harris walk over to several people at the gas station, including Hall, and invite them to a candlelight vigil that night for a friend whom Harris said was murdered last week, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The witness told police there was no argument between Hall and Harris before the shooting, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Hall allegedly fired two shots at Harris while sitting in the driver’s seat of his car, then fired another round as he exited the vehicle, causing Harris to fall face down on the ground, according to the witness.

The witness heard a fourth gunshot before Harris got up, ran to the witness’ vehicle, and said he needed to go to the hospital, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

About an hour after the shooting, police said Harris died from his wounds, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
