PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — One man was killed and two others were injured after a triple shooting Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot of a Chipotle restaurant located near Palm Beach Gardens, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said the shooting occurred shortly after 2 p.m. along Northlake Boulevard east of Interstate 95.

Employees at a nearby Olive Garden were training when the shooting occurred, prompting them to duck after hearing the gunshots.

Barbera said one of the gunshot victims was pronounced dead upon arrival at a local hospital.

One of the other victims is in critical condition, and the third victim had injuries described as not life-threatening.

Detectives said there is no threat to the community.

The sheriff's office has not released the names of the victims.
