Murder Mystery with Conner and Gavin

In a small neighborhood just outside of Memphis, Tennessee two teenagers were walking home from the Basketball Court. Conner and Gavin had been playing all day now that school was out for Spring Break. Just as the two boys parts was gun shots ring out in the night air. Conner hits the ground immediately, he has no idea where the shots came from. He lays there and waits to see if there will be more shots or if he can get up. All of a sudden his phone vibrates, it's a text from Gavin, " Bro, did you hear that?!? the text read. Conner replied back, "Yea man but where did it come from? Where are you? Meet me in front of the old Johnson house." Conner pulls himself together and gets up, he still doesn't see anybody around. He walks over the sidewalk and takes a back ally way to the old Johnson house. "Conner, Conner don't go it's a trap!!", he hears Gavin yelling. He stops looks around but Gavin is no where to be seen.

Conner running down the ally. "Hey, what's going on?" the man ask. "Call 911", Conner yells while running away. Not knowing that this man is the one that pulled the trigger and Conner had showed him right where he was going. The man calls his partner on the walkie-talkie, "Hey you got one running straight to you, he just ran by me and had no idea who I was,". But the other end of the walkie-talkie was silent. The man grabbed his bag from the house and pulled his mask down and left the house. Conner was running and didn't know what to do all he could think is that Gavin was in trouble and he had to help. He reached the meeting point but there was no Gavin. He started to walk the way to Gavin's house just in case he was still on his way but he just wasn't there yet.
No sign of Gavin anywhere, he text him and got no answer, he called him and still no answer, "Where are you Gavin? What happened?" he thought. He walked up to Gavin's house and knocked on the door, no answer, he sent Gavin's

mom a message on FaceBook asking her to call him. He didn't know what to do, the lights were off, the doors was locked it was like nobody was home. Conner sat down on the steps and decided he had to call his mom to tell her what happened. She told him to come home, Gavin was at his house. He quickly jumped up and ran home. Once he got to his driveway something felt off, he stopped and looked around. The lights was off, the car was out of the garage but running, no one was to be seen.

Conner ran up to the apartment that was above the garage and hid until the cops came.
