The seller drove to the 8500 block of Hawk Run Terrace and parked his vehicle.  Wassi Young, Foster, Brown, and Thomas encountered the seller and attempted to rob him at gunpoint.  Shots were fired and Wassi Young and the seller were shot.

After the shooting, all parties fled.  Wassi Young succumbed to his injuries in the neighborhood parking lot.
