  1. I live nearby and me and my family sometimes go there for dinner and we were just talking and I needed the Bathroom. I then made my way to the bathrooms when I could’ve someone was following me into the women’s room but he looked male. I turned around but nothing was there and then I heard this gunshot and I ran downstairs to explain what happened.
