20-year-old George Griffin was driving the vehicle from which Preston ‘Davis’ Cannon shot large mortar-style fireworks at a couple who were walking their dog on September 15. Keiffer Smith and Leah Langfelder were walking their dog near Scarlet Ridge Drive and Autumn Crossing Way when a vehicle approached them, and fireworks were launched from the vehicle, exploding in their direction. One of the explosions struck Mr. Smith. Interviews and video surveillance revealed Cannon to be the person who shot the fireworks and Griffin as the driver. Elijah Schuerman, a friend of Cannon and Griffin, told officers during an interview that multiple fireworks were thrown from the vehicle before this incident.
