Officials said a family member of the victim later contacted police, saying they were unable to get in touch with the victim’s girlfriend, 20-year-old Massania Malcolm, and her 1-year-old daughter, Jordania.

Police went to check out the couples’ apartment, but no one was home and there were no signs of foul play, WESH reported.

At the hospital, the victim regained consciousness again and told police that he was shot by Griffiths in a car.

The victim also said that his girlfriend, Malcolm, may have also been shot, but Griffiths drove off with her and the child.

Griffiths had been staying with the couple before the shooting took place, WESH reported.
