News 5 spoke with Phat Tuesday owner Rick Johnson Saturday afternoon following the shooting:
“I’m heartbroken by it myself. “I’m an older guy, and I hate to see these youngsters out here destroying each other and themselves. What happened to fighting, and getting up… shaking hands? That’s how we use to do it back in the day.”Rick Johnson, owner of Phat Tuesdays Sports Bar
