FOX13 spoke with Griffin's brother, who didn't want to be identified. He said he spent much of the day, trying to figure out if Griffin was alive.

“Was his life in danger? Did my brother pull a gun out on him or did he see anything for him to jump straight out of the car and to go straight shooting?” he said.
