According to police, witnesses, and cell phone video, the victim had been traveling southbound on Alafaya Trail in her vehicle and was stopped at the road’s intersection with Mitchell Hammock Road.

Another vehicle pulled up behind the victim’s vehicle with two occupants, including 21-year-old Keegan Johnson who was riding as a passenger. The vehicle began aggressively honking its horn.

As the light turned green, both vehicles proceeded through the intersection, and the vehicle in which Johnson was riding overtook the victim’s vehicle before continuing to a red light at Alexandria Boulevard.
