Deputies said Ellis and Waters had made arrangements to purchase narcotics from an associate. That person arranged for them to purchase the narcotics from Brooks.

Authorities say Waters and Ellis attempted to rob Brooks at gunpoint.

“Waters was wearing a ski mask that was also found on him upon law enforcement’s arrival. When they attempted to rob Brooks, Brooks began firing his own firearm at Waters. Brooks fired several rounds and one hit Noah Waters, killing him,” a release said.

Deputies are questioning several witnesses and a subject has been detained.

Several schools nearby were placed on lockdown, which has since lifted.

The investigation is ongoing.
