Bowie was taken to a local hospital by a private vehicle where he died.

Redd was also wanted for Aggravated Assault in a shooting that left a woman with a gunshot wound in her arm.

In that case, Redd is charged with:

  • Fleeing or Attempting to Elude Officers
  • Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute
  • Possession of a Handgun by Person Under 18
  • Possession of a Handgun During the Commission of a Crime
