The investigation revealed that a day before the shooting, the owner of a 2014 Honda Civic had contacted police to report that the vehicle had been stolen. Police say the owner of the Civic would frequently allow Phillips to use the car.
Prior to the shooting, Phillips was riding in a vehicle being driven by his girlfriend, 29-year-old Chelsea Holman, when they spotted the stolen car at the pumps of the gas station.
That’s when police say Holman pulled into the gas station and next to the driver’s side of the Civic. Phillips confronted Everett and fired one shot into the car, sticking the teen in the head and killing him.READ MORE: Sharon Hill Borough Council Launches Independent Investigation Into Fatal Shooting Of 8-Year-Old Fanta Bility
