At approximately midnight on August 11, 2021, Joyner allegedly argued with a female acquaintance at 100 Walden Heights Drive (Heights Apartments.) The female told Joyner to leave and when he refused, she asked for help. A male friend came to the location to assist and that’s when Joyner allegedly assaulted the female. When the male friend tried to intervene, Joyner allegedly shot him causing fatal injuries.
