The shooting came after Brooks dropped off his girlfriend, Aliyah Thomas, and her 2-year-old son for a birthday party. Mathurin is Thomas’ ex-boyfriend, Channel 2 reported.
According to Brooks, he waited in the parking lot because he was not invited to the party. Minutes later, Mathurin came outside and confronted him, Channel 2 reported.
“People came running in, screaming. And there was so much commotion,” Thomas told the news station.
When police arrived at the scene, Mathurin resisted an officer trying to arrest him and ran toward Brooks, the warrant said.
Mathurin was granted a $30,000 bond.
