Reports indicate four law enforcement officers have been injured along with “multiple” (some report as many as 12) civilians. While local TV reports the shooter is dead, other media reports indicate he/she has been arrested.
This is still a developing situation and the “facts” frequently are mis-reported and change as time goes on.
