Hill was a recent graduate of Fairfield High School, where he played football, and he planned to play at Independence Community College in Kansas.
Dwyer said Velasquez initially confessed to being the only shooter, and detectives recovered the gun he allegedly used. But detectives began hearing that a second person may have been firing a weapon, and the investigation continued.
“So we started at square one and began interviewing all the people who were out there and through that arduous task people came forward and said, ‘Yeah, this guy was shooting and had a gun too,’” Dwyer said.
A second weapon has been recovered.
Velasquez remains charged with two counts of felonious assault and is scheduled to be in court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.
