The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a statement they are investigating the incident. Officials said three people were pronounced dead at the scene and two were taken to a local hospital and are in stable condition.
Police said an argument occurred after an employee informed a man his gun should not be loaded until he is in the actual range, local outlet WDSU reported. Multiple shots were fired, though it’s unclear who shot whom. The man and two customers who had stepped in were shot, along with others nearby.
The sheriff’s office statement said a suspect shot two people inside the building and was then engaged by others and shot outside the building by multiple individuals. The suspect was one of the people who died at the scene.
