At the time, police said they believed the shooting to be targeted. Witnesses reported seeing the shooter follow Larry into the restaurant before he started shooting.

Larry was arrested in 2009 for his role in the murder of 8-year-old Savanah Bullins. Police said she was killed when gunmen fired into her father's apartment from outside. Investigators believed Bullins' father Wilbert was the intended target of the shooting.

Larry served time in prison in connection with the murder and was released in September 2020, according to Department of Corrections records.

The shooter in Larry's murder has not been publicly identified as of this report.
