    My uncle happens to work at that restaurant, and it was not a black man, apparently it was an Armenian that lives upstairs in the building. My uncle told us that some women came knocking at his house and scared him. He opened the door pointing a gun and the women called the cops. I heard the guy left the building a long time ago, I don’t think anyone is armed in there.
