LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Warrants have been issued for two people in connection to a drive-by shooting that happened on Cache Road in Lawton.

Warrants have been issued for Leandre Johnson and a minor.

According to court documents, the teen was seen walking into Buffalo Wild Wings on August 17, where he ran into a man he has a history of arguing with.

Investigators say he then went out to a car with Johnson and waited until the other man left the restaurant. When he got into his car and started to drive off, investigators say multiple gunshots were fired from the car the teen and Johnson were in and they started following after him.

The situation was caught on surveillance cameras from nearby businesses.

The car the victim was in was hit by bullets, as was the Rib Crib restaurant in that area.

According to court documents, the two crashed into each other, causing the suspects’ car to lose its front bumper.

Investigators say the two then took the car to a house on NW Elm Avenue.

A witness told police she drove there and picked the two up after the shooting.

According to investigators, a document with the teen’s name on it was found inside the car when officers searched it.

The two have been charged with felony discharging a firearm into a dwelling, while Johnson is also charged with possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.
