During the transaction, one of the suspects allegedly produced a gun and shot Johnny in the back as he was running to his father’s car.

The two suspects were arrested this past Thursday but were yet to be named. The 18-year-old suspect still remains nameless as charges have yet to be officially filed. Higgins faces four felony charges including murder and attempted armed robbery.
