The security officer, according to Jackamonis, was struck by gunfire from one of the men in this case. She returned fire, Jackamonis said, but none of the men were hit.

All four men fled the scene in a red or burgundy box style Chevy sedan, Jackamonis said.

The officer, meanwhile, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital.
