They say it appears there was an argument before one of the other men shot and killed him.

Officers originally received a call just before 3 a.m. about a woman screaming in the parking lot.

Within a few minutes, they say, they began getting calls about the shooting.

The shooter and the other man took off running.

Police searched the area but did not find them.

They say Perez’s relatives became emotional after the shooting and they had two arrest two of them who interfered with investigators’ work.

Detectives spent some time gathering evidence and trying to garner information from potential witnesses.

However, police said they still had a lot of unanswered questions, including the reason for the shooting and whether the victim and shooter knew each other.

Later, investigators had an SUV towed from the parking lot which they believe is connected to the case somehow.
