Shots fired in Chuck E. Cheese’s parking lot during altercation in Florida

Florida police are investigating an incident where shots were fired outside of a Chuck E. Cheese during an altercation on Saturday, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

“No victims have been located at this time,” police said.

The sheriff’s office received multiple calls about shots being fired near the Hillsborough County facility just before 5 p.m. Saturday. Detectives say an altercation broke out inside the Chuck E. Cheese, but a security guard moved the crowd outside into the parking lot.

During the move, a woman brandished a gun in the lobby of the entertainment center and the security guard attempted to take it from her.

“At some point, the woman lost possession of the gun outside of Chuck E. Cheese, while another woman picked it up and fired at least one bullet into the air” , the sheriff’s office said. “The shooter then lost possession of the firearm, and a third woman picked it up and placed it inside a light gray Chevrolet Traverse.”

The three women, along with a suspect, are in custody for their involvement in the incident. There is no ongoing threat to the public, according to police.

During the altercation, a white Audi crashed into the Chuck E. Cheese, and two women and a minor were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“The driver was also taken to hospital,” police said. “His involvement is unknown at this time.”

It’s unclear if the car crash is related to the initial altercation.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing, police said.
