Don't Shoot!

I was going on a blind date with another couple. We went to the movies and then stopped at a fast food place to get some food. I wasn't hungry, so I stayed in the car. Well, there was a long line and it was taking forever, so I went in to use the bathroom. When I got inside the door, the two guys we were with started fighting these other guys in line and my date pulled out a gun and shot one guy in the stomach. Needless to say, I was in shock and my date and his friend ran out of the restaurant and left me and the other girl there. The man he shot was ok and we just waited for the police to arrive. About a year later, his father called me wanting me to testify on his behalf in court. I told him how on earth could I help him when all I saw was him shooting that other man?
