Decidi olhar em direção ao local de origem da correria, quando percebi que havia dois homens e uma mulher agredindo violentamente com socos e chutes a uma mulher no chão, quando fui me aproximado do local, um grupo de pessoas que estavam próximos, saíram em disparada fugindo dizendo que um dos homens havia sacado uma arma e apontado para as pessoas que estavam por perto.
