The Star gives this account: Ragsdale and two other men were sitting in a BMW in a driveway when two vehicles pulled into the driveway behind the BMW around 3 a.m. A gunman fired shots into the BMW, critically injuring Ragsdale and wounding the other men in the car. The driver of the BMW (who may have been the "intended target" in possible gang retaliation) was shot in the legs.

Update (11:48 a.m., Wednesday, July 22): Just got the police report. There are a few more details. When police arrived, Ragsdale was "unresponsive."
"This all started at Club Zen," another victim told police but refused to "say anything else about how it started."
Another witness "was uncooperative and would not give a statement."
Meanwhile, Ragsdale was bleeding from the head.
