Why I Don’t Go To GameStop

Let me start this story off with a little message. I rarely go to GameStop, and when I do, its only because every other place is closed or I’m in a hurry. So this story happened on Christmas Eve of 2017. I just bought my Nintendo Switch and I needed a game. Looking online, every other store that sold games was closed. No big deal, I’ll just get in and get out as quickly as possible. Or so I thought. I hopped in my car and made my way to the nearest GameStop. I walked in and started browsing the games. The store was surprisingly busy this day, with at least thirty people inside. I grabbed a copy of Super Mario Odyssey and got in line. I was standing in line for a good ten minutes when two shady looking men came in. They seemed to be in their late 40’s or early 50’s at most. The two men begin looking around at various games and collectibles, while awkwardly looking around at the other people every few seconds. After about a minute of doing this, one of the men go up to the only cashier working the store and whispers something to them. I was too far back in line to hear it but I knew something was about to happen. The other guy walks over to where I’m standing in line and just stares at me and the young woman in front of me. He then pulls out a gun and puts it up to the woman’s head. I felt like I was in some messed up nightmare. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. The man then yanks the woman’s hair and says, “You’re coming with us, sweetie,” in a low, creepy voice. I could hear her crying and begging for her life but all I could do was stare at the ground in shock. The next moment is something that I will never forget. The woman elbows the man in the stomach as an attempt to get away but obviously fails. Then the man pulled the trigger. There was ringing in my ears, and a lot of screaming. I remember hearing the other guy screaming “RUN!” and that was it. When I came back to reality, my clothes were covered in blood and I saw the woman’s lifeless corpse on the ground.  I still think about that woman. It’s been over a week and I can’t get the sight out of my head. After talking to the cops and returning home, I found out from the news that she went to a nearby college. I also found out that she was a relative who I never met. I’m not sure how shes related to me but I’m not sure how to find out. My advice to anyone reading or listening to this, always keep your guard up. This can happen to anyone, anywhere. Do not try to be a hero. I know you want to do something but helping can bring negative consequences.
