CONCORD, Calif. - Concord police are investigating a shooting that happened outside the Dave and Buster's entertainment center that sent four people to the hospital late Sunday night.
Lt. Greg Rodriguez said in a news release that a man and a woman were shot at the establishment in the 2000 block of Diamond Boulevard.
Two more men, both with gunshot wounds, drove themselves to Sutter Delta Hospital in Antioch, police said.
No one was killed and the exact injuries of those shot were not released.
Preliminary details indicate there was an argument between two groups inside Dave and Buster's which led to the shooting. Police did not release details about what the argument was about.
Video at the scene showed many customers outside the entertainment center after the shooting. Police said that no one outside was struck by gunfire.
Dave and Busters' corporate office sent a statement to KTVU that read, "Our thoughts are with all of our guests and team members impacted by this incident. Their safety is our priority. We particularly want to thank our team members and security officers who quickly mobilized to help. We are doing everything possible to support the police in their investigation."
The indoor entertainment center will be closed until 5:30 p.m. Monday.
If anyone has information, they should call the Concord Police Department confidential "tip line" at (925) 603-5836.
Dave and Buster's opened its doors at the Veranda Shopping Center in Concord in September 2019. Closed during much of the pandemic, the venue is considered a new family destination for locals. Visitors to the shopping center on Monday said it has always felt safe, but now they are less sure of their safety.
"I don't know if we would come again," Sarah Speights, a Concord resident, said. "I think it's a little scary to think if people are able to get into a Dave and Buster's with a gun."
Dave and Buster's Corporate Office did not respond to KTVU's questions regarding how the company handles weapons brought into its venues.
The presence of security guards roving around the shopping center gives some customers peace of mind their safety while shopping there is in good hands.
"Anywhere you go, you always just have to look over your shoulder," Steve Grubka, a Martinez resident, said. "Because people start arguing, next thing you know, they're pulling guns out."
