The shooting happened inside the liquor store, and police said there were several witnesses. Love said the shooting was a brazen act.

"Whether it's anger, a dispute, whatever it is in a public place like this...many times I don't think people consider the ripple effect that may have," Love said.

Love said police will be working efficiently to investigate before heavy rains arrive.
