Today Ricky Johnson went back to the spot where Lawrence fell."He had a good spirit and he was a good hearted type of guy," says Johnson.Chattanooga police say his heart stopped when a fight between two men got out of control. Detectives say a man named Anthony Russell threw a bottle at Montez Davis' car. Davis circled around the parking lot, started shooting at Russel but hit Lawrence instead.Police say after that Davis, drove a block away to his house on Tunnel Boulevard. That's when someone, drove by and started shooting at the home. And police say Davis and people inside started shooting back.While police were investigating these two shootings...another person was shot close by."During that process a lady who was driving down the street was shot as she drove North on Tunnel Boulevard," says Jerri Weary, Spokesperson for Chattanooga Police.Davis is now charged with first degree murder, reckless endangerment, and felony possession of a weapon.
"He is a validated gang member but we dont know if this was gang related as of yet," says Weary.
Several people tell us Johnathan Lawrence was turning his life around to become a devoted church member and father.
Now at 42 years old, he's dead and will never get that chance."Somebody has to step up and do something because its happeneing too often we can sit around and say you hear about so and so getting killed but what have we done to make a difference," says Johnson.Right now police are still looking for the person who shot the second victim in the hand. They haven't figured out whether it's related to the shooting killing Lawrence. Detectives say more arrests are likely.
