In two separate videos taken from Nest surveillance cameras, Emmett is seen sitting in his Range Rover, when the gunmen approach him. A weapon is then pointed at Emmett while an assailant tells the athlete "don’t move" and "we want everything." Emmett gets out of the SUV and attempts to make an escape by running away. Emmett appears to have been shot in the back as he fled the scene.
According to Dallas Police, the suspects used a white Chrysler 300 to flee the scene. Witnesses claim to have seen two shooters. One is described as "a tall, thin black, man wearing a red hat."
Emmett's family and friends are searching for a motive behind his murder. "I’d like to know why.. and I’d like to know who," Emmett's aunt, Karen Oliver-Thomas, told the local CBS-affiliate. "It’s just tough for us and we’re trying to make sense of everything." NBA star turned BIG3 staple and fellow Texas native, Stephen Jackson, also shared his thoughts on the situation.
