25 people, including French and his crew were questioned by police. Three people were taken into custody for carrying guns. Investigators say that someone inside the bus returned fired after the initial shots rang out.

"When you find people like that, they should just never see the light of day again. I mean that kind of behavior's just unacceptable. For me, there's just no rehabilitation for anything like that," Ramsey said
Authorities said they didn't believe Montana or his crew were specifically targeted by the shooting, and that neither of the victims was connected to the rapper.
French had just returned from performing at Theatre of Living Arts in town when the shooting happened.
