The next day, the victim's father took his grandchildren to an address on East Brown Drive to meet with Hester, who is their father. Hester and the victim's father began to argue and Hester allegedly fired a gun several times in the direction of the victim's father. According to the news release, one of the bullets struck the vehicle the children were in at the time. Again, Hester fled the scene prior to the arrival of police officers.
