The worker reported feeling scared and anxious after the shooting occurred.

“We can only work with one person at a time,” the worker stated.

He said that when the cops finally left, his manager was there by himself trying to figure out what to do next.

“For the area, it doesn’t surprise me, but I’m kind of surprised it happened,” the worker said. “Most notably at ten o’clock in the morning.”

The owner of a food cart in a pod across the street agreed with the shop worker.

John Nashlund, the owner of MoJo’s Hawaiian, said that the shooting had made him and other food cart workers talk about what they would do if a shooter showed up at their pod.

Nashlund said that it’s getting harder and harder to run a business.

“Our hearts go out to the business owners in the area who are just trying to make a living,” he said. “We’ll pray for them tonight, and I’m sure they’ll be up and running again soon.”
