“Hearing the gunshots and the commotion, family members went to the back of the apartment were Mr. Wright was. A struggle ensued where they were trying to disarm him. He was able to break away and began firing indiscriminately. He struck another member of the family in the head.”
Police questioned the relative who fatally shot Wright and then released him. It’s possible he fired to protect himself and others and won’t face any charges, Patterson said.
“We haven’t ruled out the potential for charges,” Patterson said, though he added: “It’s a very good possibility that he will not be charged.”
