The victim is identified as John Marx, 27. He
sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the

Officer E. Carstens reported:
Mr. Marx was outside his place of employment
possibly taking a smoke break when witnesses heard multiple gunshots
in the area. Employees called out for Marx but he did not respond.
The side doors of the restaurant were locked and Marx was blocking
the backdoor so employees asked a customer at the drive-thru window
to look behind the building. The witness observed Marx on the
ground at the back door.
