Police responded in force to the Walnut Creek Cheesecake Factory Sunday after someone reportedly spotted a firearm. Officers responding to the area were met by a “sizable” crowd of people apparently attempting to leave the area after a fight broke out, detaining several for questioning.
Initial reports that at least one firearm was recovered could not be confirmed with police.
There were no reports of injuries or an exact number of people detained or arrested, though some police sources have said six people were detained or arrested.
The incident was reported at approximately 5 p.m. with patrons and workers saying the restaurant was crowded at the time.
