A witness said he heard gunshots at about 12:30 p.m.

"My business partner’s car got shot at three times. He has a Buick and he got shot three times. One of my other co-worker’s car got shot once. It bounced off the top of the car. But there's a scratch on it. Den on it that all. But no once got hurt. No one got hurt on the premises," Unsal Arda, owner of Pasha Hookah Bar, told NBC 10.

No arrests have been made as police continue their investigation.
