Four men are dead following a horrific shootout last night at an Asphyxiation Point diner located on Beacon Road in Lowertown.
Witnesses described the scene as a 'massacre'.
Allegedly, a black sedan (originally confused for a undercover police 'ghost car') drove up to the restaurant around 4 pm, pulling behind a green SUV parked in the lot. Multiple shots were then fired into the SUV by two masked perpetrators who had arrived with the sedan, killing all four who had been inside the green vehicle.
The violence continued to escalate as a local Private Investigator became involved, trading shots with the masked men. Though he avoided direct hits, witnesses state that he appeared to have been wounded from damage taken to his own vehicle.
The armed men then quicly left the scene before the arrival of police and emergency services, and therefore escaped into the night.
The shooters are described as male, of average height, and wearing a pig and clown mask respectively.
Captain Kerri Oakleaf explained when interviewed that there was not much else to report, stating, "We may know more once the identities of the victims can be ascertained. Rest assured that [the police] are working diligently to get to the bottom of this."
Anyone with information about this crime should contact the APPD directly.
