Business owner Nathan Brooks remained positive as he surveyed the damage. He said he will be open for business.

“None of my equipment was damaged, so I will be working,” Brooks said. “It’s just a minor setback with the wall and glass, so we won’t have air conditioning for two or three days, but I’ll be working.”

Officers searched the area for the suspects but made no arrests.
