The initial investigation revealed an interaction between a man and a security officer at the hookah lounge led to the shooting. Authorities believe a man brandished a weapon while being escorted out of the lounge. The security officer fired his weapon, striking the man, authorities said. 

After being hit by the gunfire, authorities say the offender fired his weapon and struck three women in the process.
