The victim died from her injuries, officials said. Gibson surrendered to firefighters, who held him there until deputies arrived.

Officials said at least one firefighter was in the parking lot at the time of the shooting, visiting with his wife and children. The fire chief told FOX 5 News because it happened so fast and because of the nature of the incident, there was nothing anyone could have done to stop the violence.
