Richard Moore, the victim's husband, told police that Theodore was out walking his dog and when he returned, he encountered the suspects. Theodore asked Richard for a bat and then went downstairs to confront the suspects.

Richard says he was upstairs and heard two gunshots. Afterward, one of the suspects came upstairs and demanded money from Richard. The suspect also took a picture of Richard's license and told him "I know where you live. I know where you work, I've been following you to two days."
