One dead, another wounded in restaurant shooting in Bloomington
A person eating lunch was killed and a server was wounded Wednesday in a brazen daytime shooting inside a Vietnamese restaurant in Bloomington.
The suspect, a man police said was wearing a maroon hoodie and who they believe brought two weapons inside Cô Tu' at 8907 Penn Av. at about 1 p.m., was still at large Wednesday evening. Bloomington Police Chief Booker Hodges said investigators don't know a motive yet, but he vowed the shooter would be apprehended.
Hodges said the suspect displayed a weapon upon entering the restaurant the first time, but a handful of patrons pushed him back outside twice. The suspect was able to get in on his third attempt, Hodges said, at which point he fatally shot a 49-year-old man who was a frequent patron of the restaurant.
Should have called the police instead of just pushing him out. Crazy
This shit has got to stop n only WE can do that. But we finally will?
What I do know is..this has got to stop. Not doing anything is weak n just folding over. The guns are the common dominator n any sane person can see that. Time to really get serious..exactly what that is, I again, dont know. Im just pissed.
The 47-year-old Texas man was captured about 130 miles north of Oklahoma City near the Kansas border
Bloomington police said more information on the shooting will be released Monday.
