Following a disagreement over the whereabouts of some drugs and/or drug money, Wells put a bounty on Myles. Davis met Wells at a park where they discussed the bounty. Davis, who resides in Chicago, then accompanied Wells and some other men to Griffith, Indiana where Myles lived. Wells took Davis to an apartment complex and showed him where Myles resided, all the while stressing that Myles needed to die.
Davis' uncle, Robert Davis (" Robert" ), did not know Myles, but Davis informed him of the bounty. Davis then rode with Robert to show him where Myles lived. Once there, Davis pointed out Myles' vehicle, and Robert parked nearby. Robert then retrieved a t-shirt and hat from the trunk of his car, and the two men sat in the car for several minutes.
