Muse, Abdulla, and Solomon-Redd were employees; Dirir was the business owner.

Police say surveillance video shows Dirir in a verbal argument inside the businesses. Gunshots were then shown penetrating a wall. No one else entered or exited the business other than the three victims and the suspect.

The weapon, a semi-automatic handgun, was recovered at the scene, Capt. Michael Sack said.
