Miller said this Waffle House location is typically pretty safe. He told FOX 5 the restaurant had a few windows shattered, but they were able to cover them with holiday wrapping paper and opened back up a few hours later.

"I mean we are open 24/7 so you're going to run into things from time to time," Miller said. "We are adding extra security through New Year's."

Questions started swirling Tuesday that this may have been a gang related shooting. Mazi's attorney shot down those statements.

"There have been comments that he's apart of some gang," Issa said. "It's not a gang. It's an entertainment group and they've never affiliated themselves with a gang whatsoever."


Police are searching for the suspect who they said immediately fled the scene. No word yet on what led to the shooting.
