Police say a man who allegedly fired off several shots inside a Warminster, Bucks County restaurant he once owned surrendered to police overnight.

Investigators say Jose Delgado, 33, was accompanied by his lawyer when he turned himself into authorities. Delgado faces several charges including, discharging a firearm, making terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, and simple assault. He is being held on $500,000 bail.

Police were called to Mama Juana's restaurant inside the East County Line Road shopping center in Warminster around 10 a.m. Friday for a report of a dispute. Investigators say Delgado, the former owner of the restaurant, got into an altercation with the current owner. Police say Delgado fired off a semi-automatic hand gun four times. The new owner and two employees were inside the restaurant at the time of the shooting but no one was hit, police say.

William Tennent High School, McDonald Elementary School, and the Centennial School District administration building were locked down while police investigated the shooting.

The manager of the shopping center told NBC10 that Delgado and the current owner were still working out details of the sale.
