“At the end of the first round of gunshots, I saw people, I saw maybe six or seven, maybe ten people running around the corner from where the restaurant was located,” Schmorak said. “There were two of us who could see the people, so we kind of said ‘everybody get inside, there are gunshots’, and it was pretty scary in the restaurant. There was a family with small children.”
