In my town, there's something called "First Fridays". Every first Friday of every month, a few blocks are shut down and food trucks gather, art galleries show new art, and people come to walk around and congregate outdoors.

Three days ago, during this event, a gunman opened fire into a crowd less than 1/2 a block from where I was working. We found out about the commotion because people were running into my restaurant off the street, seeking cover.

Only one lady died, so it didn't make the national news. But it shook the shit outta me.
