Police say family and friends were gathered for a memorial service when an argument broke out. That’s when, police say, a man shot another man.

“A male gets up who was wearing Muslim garb, walks up to the altercation, reaches up and fires one shot, possibly two and maybe more. Then we see him run out the front door with a female running behind him,” Haverford Township Police Chief John Viola said.

The victim was taken to Lankenau Hospital with a gunshot wound to the groin. There is no word on the victim’s condition or his identity.

The gunman is still at large, but police say they have surveillance video from inside the business and a good idea who the suspect is.
