According to the affidavit, Gardner, the gunshot victim, was contacted by Cody Palm and Scmieding to meet up. When Gardner entered the vehicle, Fink was sitting in the back seat with a mask on while Schmieding and Palm were in the front.
Police say Fink and Schmieding thought Gardner had stolen pills from a mutual acquaintance.
Investigators said Fink pulled out a gun while the four were in the car and stole Gardner’s backpack and phone. Fink told Schmieding to pull into a parking lot where Gardner could exit the vehicle.
Schmieding told officers Gardner exited the vehicle and began yelling at her through the window while pointing a gun at her, according to the report. That’s when Fink opened his door and fired at least three shots at Gardner.
Officials say Gardner suffered a gunshot wound to his right thigh.
Police said they arrested Schmieding. Fink is still on the run.
