"They were able to immediately begin life saving measures for many of these patients", he added.
"I can not say that there's no further public danger at this point, because the suspect is not in custody", Chacon said. "It appears at this point to be isolated to this one area", Chacon said.
Authorities have said they will be briefing the media on the latest information regarding the shooting but have not yet confirmed a time.

Chacon repeated that at an early morning press conference, noting that there weren't many details about the suspected shooter other than: "Black male wearing a black shirt with a skinny build and with dreadlocks-dreadlock-type hair".
