Seven people were shot, two fatally at the popular restaurant Prive. One of the fatalities was pronounced dead at the scene and the other died at a hospital, as CrimeOnline previously reported. Both were men.

The wounded victims were four men ages 37, 35, 31 and 30, and a 25-year-old woman. They were taken to local hospitals in private vehicles.

Police said a witness told investigators they brought Sykes to the restaurant, and that he was also shot. Video footage of the incident reportedly shows a man in orange — identified as Sykes — take a handgun from a victim and shoot him.

Investigators say the shooting began with an altercation inside the restaurant at closing time and spilled into the parking lot, where the shooting took place.
