Attack

At approximately 5:20 p.m, Blount, armed with a Ruger Mini-14 rifle and a semi-automatic pistol, shot several pedestrians on the parking lot of Crutter's Bar & Grill. He fired upon a group of teenagers first, and then a family presumably leaving the restaurant. Ian Jordan, 17, and Rachel Dixon, 18, were the first ones to be hit. The gunman fired five fatal shots into Jordan's back, killing him instantly, while Rachel was killed by a single bullet to the head. Six people were struck by the initial gunfire, four of whom were pronounced dead at the scene, and the rest mortally wounded.[citation needed] The gunman then approached the building and opened fire indiscriminately at the entrance of Crutter's Bar & Grill. Throughout the entire attack, the gunman was described as being "aggressive" and "quiet". As he fired into the crowd, an employee of the restaurant opened a latched door behind a group of patrons, allowing them to escape. Blount reportedly fired 70 rounds, striking and killing ten patrons, four employees and one bodyguard.

The gunman consequently walked towards a kindergarten across the street from the restaurant and fired sixteen rounds through the front window and entry.

Blount then shot at a passing car, but he missed by a narrow margin.[citation needed] He continued his rampage by firing six rounds at a passing blue Renault Clio, shattering the windscreen with a burst of bullets and fatally wounding the driver, who was hit twice in the head and upper torso.
