It is on the east end of the plaza by the traffic light and close to Einstein Bagel.
As you can see in the video below (on the right side in the background), paramedics attempted to enter the premises but were turned away. The victim had already passed away.
It appears this was a suicide rather than a violent crime. Police secured only the area inside the building, even allowing a pedestrian to walk through the parking lot. An anonymous source also confirmed this was a suicide.
Police and others were talking to one young man, wearing a Batman t-shirt, who may have witnessed the shooting or found the body.
A gentleman (in the grey shirt and red shorts) approached us and identified himself as the owner. He did not offer any comment.
He then went to the witness and, along with first responders, offered comfort.
First responders from PBSO and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue remained on scene for a substantial amount of time.
Before we left the scene we shot one final video:
