Tremaine Wilborn, 29, has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of Bolton, who was 33. Wilborn was a passenger in a car that was stopped on the side of the road when Bolton pulled over to check on the car. Police believe Bolton may have interrupted a drug transaction. A struggle ensued between Bolton and Wilborn, and Bolton was shot multiple times. Police searched the vehicle Wilborn was riding in later and found almost 2 grams of pot.
The report says Bolton was shot on the left side of his face (with a re-entry on the left shoulder), on the right forearm, on the right hip, on the back of the right leg, on the right side of his torso, on the back of his left thigh, and on his right hand.
