Prosecutors said Hubbird went into a gas station off 19th and National that day, where surveillance video showed a brief conversation between him and Allen. Eventually, police said, Hubbird got into his Chevrolet Tahoe and Allen got into the passenger seat.

Things took a turn when Hubbird and Allen reached her apartment near 26th and Wells. A witness told police he saw a black SUV and two people arguing, heard a gunshot and Allen screamed, "I'm shot." Allen called 911.

A criminal complaint said security video from the gas station, a witness and police checking the Tahoe's license plate linked Hubbird to the crime.

The SUV was found in Wauwatosa the next day. Prosecutors said someone at the home where the SUV was found identified it as Hubbird's vehicle. A search of Hubbird's bedroom revealed ammunition and firearm magazines.
