Investigators have learned the woman was physically assaulted inside the bar by an unknown person. The man confronted that person inside the bar and was shot by that person.

The woman then ran outside the bar with a handgun and was confronted by an off-duty municipal police officer in full uniform who was working secondary at the bar. The woman flourished the handgun, and the police officer shot her.
