A gunman was taken into custody after he fired several shots inside an IHOP during a “targeted” attack, hitting one person, police said.
Several calls about gunfire inside the restaurant on Portion Road in Lake Ronkonkoma came in around 1:30 p.m. Monday, Suffolk County Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron said at a press conference Monday afternoon.
Two groups of people were sitting inside the restaurant when a person from one group approache the other group, Cameron said.
When the person approached, someone from the other group stood up, pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots — one of which hit the person who’d approached, according to Cameron.
