During the fight, the victim sustained injuries to his head and face.  He was bleeding from the nose and mouth when speaking to the responding officers.  The victim told officers that following the fight, he crawled to his car.  He said that when he reached his car, Rolando McClain produced a pistol and aimed it at him. He said that while he was still on the ground, McClain walked over to him and put the gun to his head.  The victim reported that he begged McClain not to shoot him and that McClain took the gun away from his head, held it next to his ear and fired it.
