Billings then jumped out of the car at the Western Way Shopping Center and tried to carjack another driver, police said.
According to investigators, Billings tried to run from officers and was seen with a handgun. That’s when he was shot by an Orlando Police officer. He was taken to the hospital before being booked into the Orange County Jail.
In Billings’ booking photo he appears to have suffered injuries to his face and was wearing a sling. Orlando police officials have not responded to a request from News 6 about what caused his injuries and where he was shot.
On Friday, Billings was scheduled to appear before a judge but did not show up. The judge ordered him held without bail for armed kidnapping and armed carjacking charges.
Stephenson was also denied bond during a first appearance hearing on Thursday.
