Officers went to the hospital and contacted Llamas, who stated he was not going to cooperate with the investigation and refused to answer questions regarding the shooting.

The driver of the vehicle was told to drive the vehicle away from the hospital by Llamas who was arrested after he was treated and released. Llamas was later booked in county jail for the outstanding warrant, negligent discharge of a firearm and possession of meth.
