The ordeal began when AJ Armstrong, then a teenager, dialed 911 at 1:40 a.m. to report multiple gunshots emanating from his parents’ bedroom. He informed the authorities that his 12-year-old sister was still asleep downstairs at the time. 

Following an initial investigation of the crime scene, law enforcement honed in on Armstrong Jr. as a prime suspect.
