According to the release, after giving Duncan the key, the victims got back into their vehicle and Duncan pulled out a firearm.

The vehicle started to pull away and leave the location, Duncan shot at the vehicle.

The Crime Scene Unit was called to the scene and they collected evidence, which led investigators to obtain an arrest warrant against Duncan.
