Police have yet to confirm details about the chaotic assault, which unfolded at about 3:30 p.m. when the shooter reportedly rammed his vehicle into the building, causing a fire and injuring people inside before opening fire. Witnesses cited by local media said he appeared to be using an assault rifle and fired off dozens of shots. Police reportedly shot him in the chest about 15 minutes after gunfire first erupted.
