One man was found shot, and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Police said that the suspect and victim knew each other.

“I’m still shocked about everything happening,” said Melissa Reed, the manager.

Reed said the shooting happened in self-defense. 

“He just got upset about something and all of a sudden, he started to get into It with the owner,” Reed adds.

FOX13 was outside the restaurant when employees arrived just learning what occurred.

“Yeah. It’s a safe place usually, sure.  I haven’t had any problems at all, but I’m a recent worker there I can’t really tell you much,” said one employee.

Investigators said the shooter was detained, but later released.

The alleged shooter has not been charged.

This is still an ongoing investigation.
