A shot was fired at the 13-year-old sister Sandra, but fortunately missed.  A 58-year-old male employee of the restaurant was also shot.  The victims were members of the Lebanese Druze community while the suspects are Sunni Muslims.  It looks like the shooting was targeting the family and appears to have been a bid to eradicate them.
