The gunman was described as a male Hispanic, 18 to 19 years of age, 5’2"-6’ tall, 190 lbs, last seen wearing a white short sleeve shirt and baggy pants. The second male Hispanic suspect was described as 19 to 20 years of age, 5’0 to 5’8"tall, heavy build, with a moustache, goatee, shaved head, and wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
