On Sunday Saginaw police had released pictures and were looking for a woman seen entering a convenience store a few minutes before the shooting. It is believed Thompson is that woman.

There were initial reports that people in the two cars had been in an argument just minutes before the shooting, but police have not confirmed that there was an argument or what instigated the shooting. “That’s where we have the questions,” Saginaw police Officer Damon Ing explained. “We do believe an altercation may have taken place, but we don’t know much more than that.”

Hansana is charged with Murder and has a bond of $250,000. Thompson faces a Failure to Report a Felony charge ad is being held on $10,000 bond.

In a press release statement the Saginaw Police Department also issued a thank you to the public for the ‘quick response’ to their request for help identifying those involved in the case.
