Police arrived at the scene on Thursday just after 11pm with reports of gunfire. Officers “came in contact with (an) active shooter incident,” said police spokesperson Genae Cook. “The officers responded, they came in and did their job. A lot of them are trying to face this, because this is a sight that no one should have to see.”
