A statement from police said officers “responded to a fatal shooting incident which occurred about 7 p.m. at the Constitution River Terminal in the area of the stalls”.

“Witnesses reported that they heard a number of gun shots in the area, and police in uniform who were stationed within the Terminal building were alerted by eyewitnesses, who led them to the area where the man received gunshot injuries.
