those weren’t firecrackers

it was monday 23 july about 16:30 and we were getting ready to open the restaurant. 5 shots rang out, just outside of the restaurant. lots of screaming and ducking and running for cover. Boobs called the cops.

i was mgr that night, and i happened to be standing at the front podium. all i saw was a teenager with baggy jeans, motionless on the pavement.

the restaurant catty-corner from us has a bullet hole in their window. they closed immediately.

i’m a little shell shocked.

it wasn’t a random act. those kids definitely knew each other. and this isn’t the last of the shootings. someone’s gonna shoot someone else again soon in retaliation.
