The victim told police the gun clicked twice but did not fire.
When the victim realized the gun was stuck, he got up and chased the man and they both fell onto the wet pavement. The victim took his cell phone and keys and fled, and the man started shooting, according to records.
The victim told police he called for help at a nearby auto repair shop, but several men inside pulled out weapons and told him to leave. Back outside, the victim saw the man in the white sweatshirt walk through his Lincoln, then saw a man in a red hooded sweatshirt running towards him, according to records.
The victim knew Cross, who was identified as the man in the red sweatshirt, of the Westbrook Apartments, according to documents.
Surveillance video showed Cross exiting the Clark gas station and chasing the victim at a nearby Citgo station, according to records.
Cross asked where the victim had been, but left when a Citgo employee refused to tell him, according to documents. Police found the victim hidden in one of the gas stations.
During the chaos, a bag of books containing the victim’s diamond-set chain necklace and $ 40 in cash were removed from the Lincoln, according to records.
