Ms. Waley and her mother were traveling in a gray Nissan Altima when Calderon pulled his vehicle (a four-door Cadillac) out into a lane of traffic, struck the Altima, and then fled the scene. Waley’s mother then chased the Cadillac in her vehicle to get a license plate number.

Calderon was taken into custody a short time later and admitted to his involvement in the shooting.
