“I heard all the commotion and came out and there were police cars everywhere, not one, not two, but a bunch. All around this road here,” Wilder said. “I heard about 15 shots, then I heard four more. It looked like Christmas. There were about 40 police here.”

According to a sign outside the hall, the space is available for rent.
