People in and around the shop heard firework-like sounds and then saw a man holding an “AR-15 style weapon” while wearing what looked like tactical gear.

Police were seen exiting the store with a shirtless man in handcuffs. The man’s leg appeared bloody.

One of the victims was a police officer who had been with the department since 2010.

Police say there is no other threat to the public.
