Witnesses said that officers without uniform responded immediately and one witness, who was taking footage of the aftermath, said that a suspect was apprehended on site.

Witness Evan Roe gave this statement:

“I was standing outside waiting for a table when some guy pulled out a gun and started shooting at people… When the cops arrived and arrested him, he was standing right next to me with his gun.”

Police assured a suspect was being questioned. . .
