Patrol officers responded to a report on July 29, 2018, of a man inside a vehicle with what appeared to be a bullet wound to his neck in front of 1707 Vagabond Street.

The investigation revealed a video depicting Bailey driving up to the residence when three individuals, later identified as Levatt, Harvey, and Turner, executed Dimitric Bailey with the intent to rob him.

Detectives interviewed multiple witnesses and determined Turner and Harvey, who were friends with Bailey prior to the robbery attempt they planned with Levatt and resulted in Bailey’s death.
