Shortly after the shooting, officers arrested Jose Gilbert Sendejas, 30, on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Officers detained multiple suspects following the shooting, though police have not announced arrests of anyone other than Sendejas. Police said they were investigating Sendejas’ possible involvement in the shooting.

Police have not disclosed a possible motive for the shooting.
