The incident happened Saturday when multiple suspects opened fire on a large crowd after an argument erupted between two individuals. Three people were killed and 12 others were injured in the crossfire. A first responder injured one of the alleged gunmen when they arrived on the scene.
“We will have a lot more to say later,” Krasner voiced. “Hour by hour we are finding out more information.”
