A detective conducted an interview with Jordan on this matter. The complaint says he "first spent a long time denying he was at the gas station or pictured in various stills" from the surveillance video. Eventually, the complaint says "the defendant identified himself as being the man in the bright blue" -- and "admitted that he joined the other men in shooting as the KIA drove away. The defendant stated that he saw the other two men firing and felt that he had to shoot, or they would be mad at him." The complaint says  Jordan "claimed he shot 3 times over the top of the KIA."

Jordan made his initial appearance in Milwaukee County court on Sunday, Nov. 27. Cash bond was set at $300,000. Jordan is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 7.
