Police responded to the scene Friday at around 12:42 p.m. where they found Jiang dead in the office of the establishment, and a deceased male outside the establishment who “appeared to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound” now identified as Huang.

A second male individual who was found outside the restaurant with a gunshot wound was transported to a local hospital. As of Saturday morning, police haven’t released his identity, or the condition he’s in.

A news release previously said the female victim and the male victim may be “husband and wife and are associated with the establishment.”

In a Friday news release, police said the perpetrator — now identified as Huang “engaged in a verbal dispute with the female victim, then shot her and proceeded outside and shot the male victim before turning the gun onto himself."
