At approximately 6:20 pm on November 9, 1992, three gunmen entered the house at 853 N. Prescott Street under the pretext of buying drugs and began demanding money. When the individuals in the house did not give them money, the gunmen shot and killed John Johnson, a 25-year-old African-American man. The three gunmen then fled the scene.
It was reported that John Johnson had been selling marijuana at the time of the murder. Two young children were present when Mr. Johnson was shot.
