STOCKTON, Calif. (CBS13) – A shootout on a restaurant patio had customers and staff scrambling for cover Thursday afternoon, and police are still searching for multiple subjects believed to have been involved in the incident.

The Stockton Police Department said two men approached two customers on the patio of Nena’s Restaurant on Weber Avenue and began arguing with them and trading insults.

Witnesses said the altercation to a sudden violent turn, leading both groups of men to begin shooting at each other.

More than 30 customers and employees took cover under tables or fled the area as shots rang out, but no injuries were reported.

More than 100 students and teachers who were on an upper floor of the warehouse, at Marinello Beauty School, locked the doors and stayed away from the windows until authorities cleared the scene.

Police detained one man moments after the shooting, but released him after surveillance video showed he never fired a weapon during the incident.

Investigators have not released a description of the suspects.

      Iduket and Joe you are both racist. Joe just because Iduket is a racist doesn’t mean it’s ok to settle to being one yourself.

    It is just going toget worse. Can not count on the police to protect us anymore. For this to end the people who still love law and order must stand tall, be done with the corupt politicians, greedy lawyers and agenda based judges.

    Wow u people sound so stupid. This is a hick town. Im fro Oakland with a diverse background. I feel so sorry for the people born in this city.

    1. I still love my city says:

      It’s funny that you say you are from Oakland, Elaine. Most of the trouble started when you people from the east bay started moving here in the late 90’s. Don’t feel sorry for us, just tell your fellow Oaklanders to go back.

    People do not have to live this way, in fear that they can’t even have a safe lunch out. This is the reason so many people fear Stockton. It’s a scary city, when some crazy people who because they are mad at someone over some little grudge that it’s ok to open fire on them in a public place. If you want to kill each other do it where it doesn’t harm others. These guys have no brains, somehow they think this makes them tough………when they are just a bunch of stupid fools. Their punishment is to live their life in fear of everyone. Oh they’ll act tough, but when you lead your life this way it’s only a matter of time, it will be your family, friend or you that will die. I know you love your city…..but this is no way to live

    Firebomb the monkeys before they spread out of their ghettos and into our neighborhoods. Or we can continue to to the politically correct and trust that the problem won’t get any worse and don’t do anything when it’s your neighbors for fear you might be called a racist and get gang retaliation for reporting it to a legal system that does nothing but perpetuate the problem. And why does it perpetuate it? That’s like telling Chiquita Banana to stop growing fruit. There’s no money for lawyers if there’s no criminals on the street.

  10. Mace says:

    I am amazed at the IGNORANCE in this thread…SMDH! Hiding behind your keyboard, spewing racist remarks.

  11. James says:

    I wonder how many of the weapons used were registered to the shooters? I also wonder if it was the guns that got mad at the insults or the morons using them? And some of us wonder why Forbes has us down as the most miserable city in America.

    Cant we just nuke this nasty, degenerate laced town…or better yet, smuggle MORE pure cocaine in and start letting nature take care of itself. Stockton is the states armpit.
