Police say the driver of the car drove around the corner but left before speaking with anyone.
"He was able to drive a block away down a side street. That's where they stopped," Detective Sean Overstreet said. "We're not sure if [the suspect(s)] were in another car and it was a drive-by or if they ran up to the car. It's hard to say."
The victim's friends were nearby, HPD says. They're trying to help police piece together what happened.
