It was unclear whether any arrests had been made early Saturday morning. According to the publication, police were investigating the restaurant’s patio area.
The Scratch Kitchen’s owner told the Sun Herald there were about 200 people at the restaurant when the shooter ran past employees who were doing security checks at the entrance to the patio.
“The person who did the shooting wasn’t a customer,” owner Brittany Alexander said. “He didn’t get an armband or anything to be out here.”
