Law enforcement called the incident “very tragic” when speaking with reporters.

I didn’t really see it all clearly. I know it was a worker who got shot in the stomach area,” said Dawson Irwin, a witness of the incident to WLWT.

I ran back to my car. It was like bizarre because the Texas thing just happened, talking about that. And then this happened here. It’s bizarre. It’s crazy to think about.
