In a shooting at an Uptown Starbucks, one man died and two other people - including a twelve-year-old boy - were injured Thursday night.

The shooting happened about 8:10 p.m. when "outside the entrance to Starbucks on the corner of Broadway and Lawrence, a drug transaction led to the shooting of three young males, including a 12-year-old boy", Cappleman said.

The 12-year-old boy and a 24-year-old man were waiting for the 28-year-old inside the Starbucks when the shooting began, Buslik said.

Another man who was shot took himself to Weiss Memorial Hospital, police said. His condition is unknown at this time. He said the suspect fled southbound on Broadway. "We were outside and heard two shots, then a pause, and I grabbed my wife and kind of pushed her down and said 'Shots!' And then there were three more nearly within a few seconds", said Mike Swaiko, who was across the street at the time of the shooting.
