Paul Haden said it was Brandon "Bubba" Arnold and Dominique Jarrett who were shooting at him, while Edward Dewayne "Beans" Duckett was the driver.

Arnold has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and Duckett with accessory after the fact and criminal conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.
