Following a preliminary investigation, authorities determined that a dispute resulted in the fatal gunshot, which forced witnesses in the parking lot to flee for their safety.

The victims of the shooting, who have not yet been named, were declared dead at the site of the crime. The two wounded guys, who were also not recognized, were brought to the nearby hospital having non-life threatening injuries and were released shortly after.

Because the inquiry is still underway, no suspects have been apprehended.
