Call 911 and take cover. Not to hijack a thread,but
something I will add, that this post brought to mind.If you younger guys get involved with a woman, find out early about her last relationship. Is she still married? Does she still date the ex on the side? Is she playing both sides? I like women,however,there are many who will put a man in a bad situation. I have seen this many times in my life and it can get you killed.

I saw this too. It was fast. I thought about what I would have done - take cover, draw my weapon to cover those I was with and others if he came back. It was too fast to react even if you saw him walk in with the gun.

I'd continue eating my pasta. Now if he interupted my meal, then......
Seriously, the whole incident probably took 20 seconds and I'm not leagally sworn in to uphold the laws of the state and protect it's citizenry.....just try'in to watch out for my own ass and family.
Call it in or leave out the back..................
All of you are assuming the person was shot once in the chest wall/lung. Its not hard to get one to the heart at point blank. And if he does, hes a truma code and SOL. CPR for about 10-15 mins while FD/EMS waits for PD to clear the scene. By the time FD/EMS gets on scene, hes dead most likely dead, but no one knows is yet.
"In a 2002 report of resusitative thoracotomies for truma patients in the ED, the 3 surivors of 10 victims of penetrating truama all had signs of life and vitals signs on arrival at the ED. In contrast, all 19patients with blunt trauma died, despite the fact that 14 of the 19 "had vital signs" at the time of the thoracotomy. In a database of 959 resuscitative thoracotomies, 22 victims of penetrating trauma and 4 victims of blunt truama survived to hospital discharge after receiving prehospital CPR (Overall survuval rate of 3%)
In 2001, the Committee on Trauma of the American Colege of Surgeons published a systematic review of 42 studies of ED thorcotomies involving nearly 7000 patients, published from 1966 to 1999. In this database, survival was 11%(500 of 4482) for victims of penetrating trauma and 1.6% (35 of 2193) for victims of blunt trauma."

As for the first scenaro, my goal would be to assure the safety of those immediately surrounding me and to find the closest exit(rear emergency exit/kitchen). If I knew he was gone for good, I would go back in and assist in treating the pt(s)I would not follow this guy, hes already showed the intent to commit premeditated murder and has nothing to lose now. If hes decides that he wants to take more out with him and I have a good shot, his day has ended and were working 2 trauma codes.
The exGF already knows who he is, theres now mystery to solve. No need to get a license plate number, etc.

Looks like she's recently unattached... introduce yourself.
It depends on how long my food has been on the table. If it had just arrived, I'm eating...
