SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police are hoping that surveillance footage taken at the Cook Out restaurant on the city's south side will help them locate seven people who attacked four Salisbury University students early Saturday morning. 

The students were in the drive thru line when police said seven men, all wearing white T-shirts, surrounded the car.  Three of the students attacked suffered physical injuries and have since been released from the hospital, according to police.  

Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan said the police department subpoenaed and received all of the establishment's footage on Thursday.  She said investigators are currently reviewing that footage, but that isn't the only video that was recorded from the assault. 

"Some members of that group were, in fact, video recording the incident as it unfolded," Duncan said.  

The chief said the department also received other cellphone video from witnesses, but it wasn't at an angle that was helpful in the investigation.  

SU students said they go to Cook Out often because of the inexpensive food and the late night weekend hours.  Junior Amanda Ellen said it's always busy, so it's not surprising that fights break out. 

"It's usually a rowdy crowd and lines are normally out the door to the sidewalk, into the street most of the time," Ellen said. 

The large number of people on Saturday morning is a concern to Duncan.  She said Salisbury police are working with the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office to determine if this was a fire code violation at the restaurant.
