  1. I was at the McDonald’s next door and just shortly after the gunfire I saw a black male wearing black pants, black shirt, maybe a mask with something red on and approximately 5’8 -5’10 at around 150 lbs – 175 lbs running away from the scene like a giselle. He ran towards the chiropractic office and immediately turned right and ran by the bushes and then turned left.
