According to witnesses, the car passenger windows rolled down and gunfire erupted, leaving Thomas Buckhalter dead and two others injured.

Milton police requested warrants and arrested the three men allegedly in the car within days of the incident. Dedric Davis, 20, and Walter Ford, 18, are the alleged trigger men. Kyhem Johnson, 23, was the alleged driver.

One woman, the owner of the vehicle who admitted to being present, Melissa Pocopanni,19, went free.
