Vincenzo Focarelli, his step-father, was the driver of the vehicle and had also been shot but survived. Vincenzo Focarelli drove from the scene and stopped a police patrol on Prospect Road, Prospect, but Giovanni was pronounced dead shortly after.
CCTV footage from Flame Avenue, Dry Creek, has been released to the public. A figure can be seen running from the car and across Flame Avenue after the shooting.
