I had an appointment to see someone about renting an apartment.
I parked my car and began walking up the street. The apartment was in a basement of the building and I proceeded down some steps to get to the door.
There were two apartments labeled A and B, but I was not sure which one I was to go to.
It was a cloudy day and the area was dark. As I turned toward apartment A, there was a loud noise that sounded like a gun being fired.
It startled me and my stomach felt like it was turning somersaults!
I hurriedly hid behind a large flower-pot when I saw the door of apartment B opening.
A tall guy with bushy hair stormed out and started toward the stairs until he saw me crouched behind the flower-pot.
He suddenly turned towards me with a gun pointed at me, then a woman bleeding from her side came out the same door and fired a gun at him.
He fell towards me with blood covering his face, and I fell back against the wall.
The policemen arrived and I was detained until they made their investigation, then I slowly walked to my car in a daze.
