Police in a release said that at about 04:30hs a patron at a night spot on Main Street, Georgetown observed a man attempting to break into his motor vehicle and discharged a round from a firearm at the man. According to the police, the man missed and the bullet struck Johnson to his face.

However, several sources said that this was not the case, but that the two were having an argument when the man fired a round at Johnson, which struck him in his face.
