Police said Bush was on state probation at the time and was wearing a GPS ankle monitor. GPS data showed Bush attending the same gang meeting as Kidd. It shows Bush leaving the meeting at 11 a.m. and traveling to the Kidd residence. It shows him there at the time of the shooting.

Police said Bush's brother, Steven Bush, said the Glock belongs to him, but that Kevin Bush had access to it.
