Several police SWAT officers could be seen less than a block away from the larger police presence, keeping a close eye over the Saint Martin’s Place banquet hall with help from a robot, tracking down any possible suspects connected to the shooting. This was after two people were already taken in custody, authorities later said.

Two flash bangs were heard at the scene just before a group of SWAT officers barged into the Dallas building. However, there were no additional suspects found inside. After a few minutes, the officers trickled out of the building in a relaxed manner and the scene was cleared.

Meanwhile, one man was transported to a nearby hospital after the shooting incident. The victim has not yet been identified, but his injuries were not life threatening. A portion of MLK Boulevard was shut down while police were at the scene, but it has since been opened back up to normal traffic.
