Police said Wharran was walking by himself around 9:15 p.m. when at least two occupants of a late model Volvo that stopped nearby got out of the vehicle and requested he come over to them. Police said when Wharran refused to comply and began to walk away, one of the youths pulled out a handgun and fired at least one shot at Wharran.
