The SUV was a described as a dark colored Ford Explorer/Expedition. The ladies state they rebuffed the advances, and when the light changed, drove to the south end of the Denny's parking lot where they met with the rest of the group. A few minutes later, the same SUV that had contacted the ladies, pulled into the Denny's lot near the group of friends. A verbal altercation between the two groups of people ensued and shots were fired from the SUV and may have also been fired from individual(s) in the parking lot as the vehicle fled the area.
