The suspect, named Jason Nightengale, walked into a garage and shot and killed a 30-year-old man who was sitting in a car. He then went into an apartment building and asked to make a phone call before he began shooting at a female security guard. The woman died at the hospital.

An hour later, the perpetrator attacked a car in which a 15-year-old girl and her mother were riding. According to police, the girl is in serious condition. After that, the attacker returned to the department store, near which he crashed into the car of law enforcement officers.
