Warrants for Long and Telford accuse them on firing weapons at a person in a red sedan, identified in some of the warrants as a Toyota Corolla. A warrant for Long says he fled towards the Coastal Club apartments after the shooting.

Warrants for Grate and Long say the shooting was captured on closed circuit TV. The warrants don’t say who shot first. City of Conway spokeswoman June Wood declined to elaborate, citing the ongoing investigation.
