On Monday, police, prosecutors and the young woman’s relatives pleaded for the public’s assistance in helping locate Hunter.
On Tuesday, Wichita Police re-tweeted a photo of Hunter with a tweet stating Hunter may be in the area.
According to court records, a passenger in the car Addison was driving told police that they were stopped at a red light at the corner of Blue Parkway and Cleveland Avenue around 9:30 p.m. when the passenger in the black car next to them began shooting into Addison’s car.
The woman driving the black car later told police that she was Hunter’s girlfriend for about a year and did not know why he began shooting at the car next to them. Shortly before, she and Hunter had an argument over french fries.
Multiple shots were fired. Police found four shell casings at the scene and five in the car Hunter had been riding in. Addison was shot in the chest and jaw.
Police said the shooting appeared to be random.
