King allegedly drove up to the house and said something to one of the victims before be he began shooting.

The three victims, who were sitting on the porch, were Brian Williams, 24, Jermaine Albert, 18, and a 14-year-old juvenile.

The 14-year-old and Albert were both shot in the leg, while Williams was shot in the foot.

King allegedly fled the scene, but later turned himself in.

The shooting was the result of long-standing tension between Albert and King, authorities said at the time.

A fourth victim, a 13-year-old boy, was reportedly grazed on his leg by one of the bullets.

King is currently detained at the Adams County Sheriff’s Office on a $20,000 bond.
