Crime Stoppers issued a media release today asking for anyone with information about the Jan. 5 incident to contact them. The suspects, a male and female (pictured) in their 20s, are described as having light brown and brown complexions.
It is not known whether the incident of extreme violence was drug, gang, or race related – or none of the above. According to a statement issued by police, the suspects visited the ‘League of Vapes’ at approx. 4:46 p.m.
