“Preliminary information indicates that a verbal altercation turned violent including gunfire,” police said.

Several suspects fled the scene prior to the officers arriving, according to police.

Crime scene investigators have processed the scene and gathered information.

In a statement posted outside Williams, management wrote that the bar will be closed for the foreseeable future.
