The witness said the person she was looking for wasn’t there. Presson fired four shots in his direction but did not trick him, he told the police.
Officers took a look at the home of the acquaintance and found around 50 small holes in the building.” The police found through records that Presson owned a red Chevrolet Colorado.
Later, after 3 a.m., an officer was in the area and heard gunshots. He traveled to the same location on North Meteor Avenue and saw a red Chevrolet Colorado parked in front of the same home. The officer followed the truck until he made a vehicle stop and arrested Presson. In her truck, he found two unused shotgun shells and a loaded shotgun.
