The affidavit released Tuesday in the case against Matthew Lee Bibee Jr., 18, says he tried to steal the car on March 31 in Olathe. The documents say the victim initially said he wouldn't give Bibee has car. But when Bibee pulled out a gun, the man put up his hands and ran away.

A responding officer shot and wounded Bibee in an exchange of gunfire. The theft attempt happened two days after Rowan Padgett, 17, was killed.

Bibee is jailed on $1 million bond on charges that include first-degree murder.
