Another male witnessed the altercation and assisted the clerk.

A short time later both subjects left in a blue vehicle and drove toward the Naval Weapons Station.

A few moments later the vehicle drove back and fired three to four shots near the male witness. One shot struck a Chevy Trailblazer in the rear tailgate area. Another shot struck the fence directly behind where there male witness was standing.

Police spoke with two more witnesses, one of which owned the vehicle that was damaged.

Both witnesses confirmed the events that had occurred leading up to the shooting.
