Allegedly the shooter, Jordyn Preston didn’t mean to shoot his girlfriend. According to reports Johnson was arguing with his daughter and that is when her boyfriend got involved. After the shooting the daughter and Johnson were taken to Riverside Hospital. He died later on and his daughter remains in stable condition.

Police are still looking for Preston and was last seen driving a silver Ford Mustang. Johnson’s family is left heartbroken over what happened. He was a church deacon that looked out for everyone.
