Investigators reviewed the video and believed one of the people was Luckett. An individual who had been in a vehicle with the victim also identified Luckett from a photo lineup.  

When police interviewed Luckett, he "denied being present at the gas station," the complaint says. Instead, Luckett stated, "He was at a gathering for 'Trell,' who is Dontrell Bush, who was killed the previous weekend."
