Police investigation revealed an argument between two people inside the bowling alley turned physical, leading to the shooting. A police officer was working in an off-duty capacity at the scene, along with a private security guard employed by the business.
Within seconds of the shooting, the officer and other people rendered to those injured first, while the officer called for backup. It’s believed Johnson took off while other officers were arriving on the scene.

Johnson initially bonded out of jail the day of the shooting. His bail at the time was set at $270,000, the TV station reports.
“On Thursday, Montgomery Circuit Judge Tiffany B. McCord increased Johnson’s bail amount to $860,000. McCord came to the figure based on these amounts for each of the seven charges Johnson faces:
- 1 murder charge: $500,000
- 2 counts of first-degree assault: $120,000 each
- 4 counts of second-degree assault: $30,000 each
The bail increase came after Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey petitioned the court to increase Johnson’s bail and public outcry over Johnson’s release from jail.”
