“A man was arguing with a woman,” she said. “They were standing outside and they were arguing. And as they were arguing, you could kind of hear little pieces of it, but you really couldn’t.

“And as they were arguing, the woman was trying to go back in. And as she was going back in the house, you seen the man pull out his gun and just start releasing. So, as he released, I ran back in, because I didn’t want to get hit by nothing. But he just started letting them go.”
