“At the time of this warrant, Goode has not become responsive and has sustained brain damage,” read an affidavit filed on New Year’s Eve. “It is unknown if Goode will survive his injuries.”
Police viewed video surveillance that showed a man, later identified as Bell, hit Goode with his fist while inside the store, according to court documents. Goode then fell to the ground outside the doorway. While officers were still at the scene, Bell returned and was recognized as the assailant in the video.
During an interview with police, Bell reportedly confessed to hitting Goode, according to court records.
Bell remains in the Montgomery County Jail.
