Thirty-four seconds into the video, a fight breaks out between two people toward the back of the parking lot. A person wearing a crossbody bag and a light-colored shirt begins to walk away from the fight, pulling out a gun and firing multiple shots a the other person. The person proceeds to turn around and run to the other side of the parking lot toward the bar.
Multiple people are seen running away and into their cars for safety as the shooter weaves behind two cars, heading back to fire more shots. After the shooter fires a second round of shots, a woman is seen running toward a vehicle and trying to get inside, but the door is locked. She promptly runs behind the car and lays on the ground, while the shooter, who circled around the vehicle, runs past her, barely avoiding stepping on her.
The person is then seen running toward the street as two LPD officers arrive on foot.
This remains an ongoing investigation.
