One of the passengers told police during the traffic stop that Callier asked him to come with him to the apartment because he thought the situation would be hostile. 

Another man riding in the vehicle said he brought a gun with him to the apartment but did not fire it. 

A third passenger said one of the vehicle’s occupants got out then returned to the vehicle immediately after the shooting, the court filing says. Callier then drove away from the apartment.
