WITNESSES RECOUNT THE INCIDENT

One witness, David Rodriguez, said he was pulling into a gas station when he heard ‘pops,” which he thought were fireworks.

Shortly after the suspect began firing bullets more rapidly, Rodriguez saw people running from the scene. He then heard sirens and saw ambulances and police arrive at the scene.

Rodriguez told CNN the Mad Butcher grocery store’s front windows were broken as if they had been ‘shot open’ by gunfire.

Matthew Gill, the meat manager at the Mad Butcher, said a man came into the store with a shotgun and ended up in a shootout with police.

As the shooting evolved, some people hid in a cooler in the grocery store, Fordyce City Council Member Roderick Rogers told KATV.
