“Now to the time where Tracey’s house was shot up,” said, Prosecuting Attorney, Matt Wiese. “The car got stopped and you all got out and then you all had the gun pointed at you?”
“Yea I believe that may have happened in Trail Bridge too,” said Witness, Michael Paul Fletcher Jr. “It happened after the shooting for sure.”
“You were also told you can’t leave? Is that correct?” asked Wiese.
“Yes sir,” said Fletcher.
