Police were called around 3:35 a.m. about an altercation inside the Boom Boom Sports Bar on South New Braunfels Avenue, which was operating after-hours, McManus said. It’s believed that the owner was trying to close the establishment when the altercation began, the chief added.
The chaos spilled over into the parking lot, where a man went to his car, grabbed a long gun and started shooting. Five people were struck, McManus said.
Two of the victims are women, the other three are men, all in their 20s and 30s, McManus added.READ MORE: COVID-19 Pandemic Has Taken A Toll On Mental Health, Led To More Drug Abuse, CDC Says
