Pub workers were closing up shop when gunshots were heard. Then, Martin said they ran for cover as truckloads of people ran inside.
“My manager didn't even get a step out the door before gunshots were fired,” he said. “So we ran to the back of the building and kind of hid out for a little bit. And shortly after that, seven, eight SUVs full of people armed with guns pulled up in front of the building. So we ran out the back door and down the alley. Probably not a minute later, they were in the building. Everything is destroyed.”
