Thomas and Scott were identified as the suspects after information gathered from witnesses, descriptions and surveillance video, according to the affidavit.

In the surveillance video, police observe Collins and the man exit the gas station before Thomas confronts them and begins “firing multiple shots” that struck Collins and the man, the affidavit stated.

“It found that Thomas was the one who fired an unknown 9mm semi-auto handgun multiple times, which caused the death of (Collins) and injury to (the man). It was also found that (Scott) was the driver of the suspect vehicle,” the affidavit stated.
