Several employees from the bar gave descriptions of possible suspects, none of which were consistent “other than possibly a heavy set white male wearing a black shirt.”

Because of the number of individuals in the parking lot at the time, police said it would be difficult to find a possible suspect.

Sunday’s incident isn’t the first time a fight has broken out in the lot.

In May 2016, two people were arrested after a fight that left a man with serious injuries.
