The owner, who does not have the proper permits to operate the home as a restaurant, identified himself only as ‘Dilly’ told the press that he was hosting a birthday celebration when the shooting occurred.

Dilly, told The Times on Saturday he has operated his business out of the house for more than a decade and also revealed that another shooting occurred at the same location in 2011.
