“So, that’s when I pulled off, pulled into the CVS and I got out, I had the gun on me. Once they got out, they identified themselves as officers that’s when I backed off, I was like all right, cool and they shot me and that was it,” Holley told investigators. “I expected them to do that if they were police officers so I’m not mad at the situation at all so, I’m not mad at all.”
