FLORISSANT, MO - “It was just unreal,” worker Victoria Howard said.
What began as a regular day at her new job turned intense for Howard and her coworkers Show-Me's Sports Bar & Grill Wednesday afternoon.
“I could see that there was a little scuffle,” Howard explained. “As my manager was walking over there was about 4 shots and then everybody started running out of the restaurant.”
Howard says she ran out the back door.
When Florissant police arrived Chief Timothy Lowery says they found two people shot, one of them dead.
Luckily, Lowery says the suspect didn`t get the chance to get away.
“He surrendered peacefully,” Chief Lowery said. “He was at the front door when police arrived. He was already disarmed by the patrons in the bar and we recovered a weapon.”
As nightfall came, police were still at the scene piecing it all together.
Meanwhile, Howard is left stunned that something like this would happen here.
“They said they`ve never had anything like that happen in show met before,” Howard said “I’m expecting to go into a safe work environment and people start shooting! It`s just crazy!”
