According to a warrant, police arrived at The Current apartments and found Grate being treated for a gunshot wound. According to a warrant, Grate "was located at the [redacted] where he was being treated for a gun shot wound."

The warrant said Grate met two other people who got into a vehicle he was in. According to the warrant, Grate and the two other subjects got into an argument, and the two others got out of the car before exchanging gunfire with Grate. 

The warrant says surveillance footage captured Grate firing a pistol. The warrant doesn't say who shot first. Wood declined to elaborate, citing the ongoing investigation.
