Police say Christopher Figgs, 28, took a gun from an ex-girlfriend in May, then confronted Edword Kiel on July 6 while Kiel was sitting in a car with Figgs’ ex, according to the Journal Gazette.

Figgs allegedly shot Kiel several times. Kiel tried to drive away but ended up passing out and hitting a tree. Court filings say shell casings found at the scene of the crime match the woman’s handgun.
