When officers arrived, they located a victim who died from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was later identified as 42-year-old Steven Lemar Fields. 

Three other people suffered gunshot wounds that were not considered life-threatening. 

Investigators later learned Cannady had been at the bar when an altercation broke out. The complaint said the bouncer attempted to break up the fight and that Cannady was maced during the scuffle.
