Restaurant Owner Reacts to Shooting of DPS Trooper
MCALLEN- The owner of a valley restaurant is speaking out following the recent shooting of a DPS Trooper.
Edgar Cordon tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS the shooting prompted a lock down at his business.
He said there were 300 people there at the time.
Cordon said his staff let customers know what was going on and moved them towards the back of the building.
"We didn't want anybody going out or anybody coming in, for the safety of the families," Cordon said.
"It was a bad situation that never happens around this area, especially. It's a pretty good area, it's pretty safe. Ours is all fenced in, so not too many people can get in here."
Cordon said they waited for the all-clear from police before letting customers leave.
