According to the probable-cause affidavit: Graham initially denied he had anything to do with the crimes. He came to the sheriff’s office voluntarily Friday with his mother, and willingly provided a DNA sample.
Meanwhile, detectives saw in store surveillance footage that the shooter had demanded that McMillan empty a cash drawer into a plastic bag. When McMillan obliged, he reached toward the shooter’s right hand, which held a gun. The shooter jumped back and fired at McMillan’s shoulder.
That hand had markings on it, and detectives concluded that a tattoo reading “Errica,” the first name of Graham’s mother, matched the markings seen in the video.
