The woman told police she had been in an alleged fight with Hammond. She also identified the driver, Malone, as the alleged suspect who fired at her and the man killed.

The man killed also received an alleged threat from Malone that he was going to “come to the victim’s grandmother’s house and shoot it up” before the shooting, according to the family. Threats were also said to have been made on the man’s life.

Officers later found the suspect vehicle in the 1100 block of Royal Gardens Court, south of the Auburndale neighborhood.

As police approached the vehicle, it drove away. One of the officers was hit by the suspect vehicle, and a second officer fired at the vehicle.

The officer who was hit was sent to the hospital with non-serious injuries.

Police said the suspect vehicle was later found abandoned on Royal Gardens Court. Mitchell said investigation is ongoing.
