Cops were called to the scene around 11 PM, and say the gunman parked outside, got out of his vehicle and quickly began shooting … first in the parking lot and then made his way in the building. It happened fast — 1 to 2 minutes, suggesting he used some sort of semi-automatic weapon.
Along with 8 people killed, there are at least 5 others reportedly hospitalized with injuries from the shooting, including one in critical condition. It appears some of the walking wounded took themselves to a hospital, but the number hasn’t been determined.
Sadly, this type of story is hardly shocking to wake up to in the U.S. anymore — as disgusting as that sounds — because there have been deadly mass shootings in more than 20 cities in just the past month, as COVID restrictions subside.
