After the shooting, Odenat tried to exit the vehicle, but Evans told him to get back in the car. Evans threatened Foster and Hogan not to tell who shot Johnson or he would kill them and their families, before exiting the vehicle.
Foster and Hogan rushed Johnson to the hospital, but she later died of her wounds. At the hospital, Foster and Hogan were questioned by police, and told police that Johnson was shot during a drug deal by a white man driving a cream-colored car. They later changed their story and reluctantly identified Evans as the shooter.
