A scuffle between Miller and the suspects ensued, where they took his Dior shoes. White also appeared to take Miller’s Rolex, according to court documents. They also took a diamond grill from Miller at some point during the robbery.

While Fletcher and White had Miller pinned down, a crowd reacted to a sound, possibly gunshots, court documents noted. Several people then ran away. The suspects continued to assault Miller while Bynum moved away and fired shots.

Investigators immediately recognized Fletcher from the video as he had an ankle monitor. Officers found the suspects in a vehicle near the shooting scene, and they were arrested, according to court documents.
