He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a firearm, according to his arrest affidavit. Another suspect identified as Christopher Urena was also arrested on charges of first-degree attempted murder, aggravated assault, third-degree grand theft and weapons possession.
“All of a sudden it was just, ‘pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop’,” said Riaan Dadewet, who described it as a warzone. “It was just gunfire everywhere. I think it was like 25 to 30 shots.” The altercation took place as a result of an argument according to a few witnesses.
According to the police report, Urena took off in a stolen vehicle after shooting a victim in the back while Awute chased down several victims, who were running away towards a nearby park. He ended up shooting a man in the leg.
