    The two women had gone to a nearby parking lot and were frantically calling 911 for help.

    The women told police they had encountered Johnson outside of a bar. He offered them a ride, but then allegedly became verbally disrespectful.

    When the women got into their SUV, the driver told police she saw Johnson draw a gun and fire at the car.

    After they drove away, police said Johnson called one of the women on her cellphone and told her he was hiding in the woods.
