Firefighters arrived shortly after and helped administer medical aid to victims.

“It was a pretty dynamic scene,” said Battalion Chief Ben Petersen with Waterloo Fire Rescue. “Coming into something like that, you are trying to size up the patients and triage the scene.”

Eight people were injured by gunfire, one died. Another four people were injured by broken glass or debris while they tried to leave the area.

No arrests have been made in the shooting.

Three people were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct outside of a hospital where some of the victims were taken.
