According to a JSO press conference held at 3:30 p.m., an employee called police when person was allegedly hanging outside with a gun.

JSO Sgt. A.A. Webb and Officer L.G Agle responded to the business and attempted to stop the suspect, who was driving away. According to JSO, the officers chased the vehicle to a dead end street.
