By now, you’ve probably seen viral footage of the chaotic brawl that tore through Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY on Friday night (April 3). NYPD are now searching for a 22-year-old suspect who allegedly fired shots in the parking lot after the melee.

ABC 7 New York reports that an one-hour wait time at Fat Tuesday, a famed New Orleans-inspired daiquiri bar celebrating their grand opening in the casino, sparked the pandemonium.

Now, police seek 22-year-old Jaquan Roberts, the supposed shooter who fled the scene in a grey 2001 Acura. A NYPD release states that no shooting victims were found in local hospitals.

Surveillance footage led police to Roberts and the owner of the car. According to the aforementioned release, “a computer check of the building where the auto is registered to yielded two people who have been arrested in the past.”

In addition, three men were arrested. The same ABC 7 report states:

Three men were arrested, according to the NYPD. Andre Rivers, 23, of Brooklyn, is being charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and has outstanding warrants. Jovan Bovell, 23, of South Ozone Park, is charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

A 30-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct and released; he was not identified. The two 23-year-olds were detained.

NYPD are still looking for any info regarding the incident. The casino has since beefed up security.
