Police issued warrants a day earlier for 19-year-old Julian Conley in the slaying of Secoriea Turner, police spokesman Anthony Grant said. Patterson said Conley was peacefully protesting and witnessed the shooting but did not open fire himself, though he was armed. Why would you want to charge a man who saw a crime but did not participate in a criminal act? The man got up and opened fire at the vehicle, Patterson said his client told him. Conley said everyone thought somebody in the SUV was shooting and other armed people opened fire at the vehicle, Patterson said.
