“It’s a business so there’s a lot of employees that were inside,” he said, “and (police are) investigating who saw what and how it all transpired.”

As for the suspect, “we’re trying to find the connection to him and this business, and then we’ll be able to figure out exactly who we’re looking for and be able to get that out to the public.”

The public is asked to stay away from the area.
