Shooter Davahughn Lamar Johnson, age 17
20-year old University of North Carolina at Charlotte student John Borek met 17-year old Davahughn Lamar Johnson in an apartment parking log, apparently to purchase marijuana from Johnson.  But the drug deal went bad.  Johnson shot Borek in the neck, critically injuring him.
