They then performed a search warrant on the vehicle and a house connected to it.
They said they were able to find one of the suspects using surveillance footage from the courthouse, which also led them to identifying the suspect vehicle.

Police said Berry Nichols had targeted the same woman before and was charged with shooting with intent to kill in that case.
