“I’m surprised, and I’m also not surprised. But for here specifically, I did not expect it to happen, right? I would not expect it to happen because, like, they’re so chill. So to come here and do something like that, that person is really out of their mind to do something like that,” one customer said.

The victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but has since improved.

Police have not released any information on a possible motive. They say they’re looking for two suspects in this case.
