On Wednesday, November 8, 2017, a 25 year old male and Terell Stembridge met at the

Stembridge were acquaintances and met for a transaction involving marijuana in

exchange for U.S. Currency. During the meeting, Stembridge produced a .40 caliber

handgun and pointed it at the male, threatening to kill him. Stembridge ordered the male

to place the marijuana in a bag which Stembridge provided as he was conducting an

armed robbery.

The male grabbed the firearm and began to fight Stembridge for control of the firearm.

During the altercation, Stembridge fired several rounds, striking the male three times.

The male retrieved his .45 caliber handgun and fired two rounds back at Stembridge, but
