A woman told police that moments before the shooting she saw a red car driving behind the Altima. As both went to exit the Riviera Apartments, the red car pulled alongside and fired shots from the passenger side, Fox 13 Tampa Bay reports.

Police found surveillance video that showed the red vehicle in the area before the shooting. The video showed a man, later identified as Felton, in the passenger seat, according to the report.

Felton is also charged with tampering with physical evidence and shooting into an occupied vehicle.
