According to the police report for Bouie, the teenager did not participate in the altercation at first, but he later “turned around and pulled out a black and silver handgun (9mm) and began shooting towards a crowd of people.”

The seriousness of the charges led local news outlets to choose to name Bouie while he was still a minor.
