The victim has been identified as Dominque Dewayne McNair, 28 years old, with no permanent address. Mr. McNair was an employee of the Africa Restaurant and Nightclub.

A local media outlet is reporting information provided to them by a neighbor that two vehicles, a silver and red vehicle were seen leaving the parking lot.

At this time, we do not have any new, verified, and actionable information to provide the community. Once we do, that information will be shared with the media and public. Until then, any information that is shared by the media or public, which is not verified by the police department, may be considered compromising to the investigation.

The person or people involved in this shooting showed an obvious disregard for public safety, and until they are in custody, there is a risk to the public. The department’s priority is the safety of the community, and will continue to diligently investigate this incident.
