The search warrant states there was loud music coming from Anderson's car and says he was apparently asked to turn it down by employees and patrons, but an argument broke out and things turned physical.

It says security guards broke up the brawl, but Anderson is accused of walking back to his car, pulling out a gun and opening fire.

Bullets sprayed into a crowd of people in the parking lot just before 2 a.m. 

A nearby officer apparently heard gunfire and responded, records indicate.

Three people were found shot in the parking lot but survived, according to police.

The suspect fled.

The search warrant states earlier in the night, the suspect allegedly told people he owned private security company.  

Police used that information to track him down soon after the shooting, according to the search warrant.

Anderson was arrested for three counts of malicious wounding and use of a firearm. 

He’s being held in the Virginia Beach Jail without bond and is expected back in court on December 2.
