On April 3, 2021, the boy’s father was driving up to a home to drop off a friend, prosecutors said.
Woods walked up to the vehicle and started arguing with the friend, shouting, “ya’ll been hating on me!” prosecutors noted.
Woods then took out a gun and started shooting into the van, according to prosecutors. One of the bullets hit Travius Taylor Jr. in the chest.
