The witness told police he began to walk towards the men to break up the fight when he saw one of the men stand up and start shooting at gray Dodge Charger that had left the parking lot.

One of the witnesses told police she was in the parking lot next to Little Caesars that she saw one guy go to a car, remove a rifle and a second gun from the trunk of a car, and gave someone a gun. The witness said the two guys then started shooting at a dark gray Dodge Charger.
