I went out on my first ride of the day around 1:15 PM , I got a ping at that exact moment I left my parking lot and went to a business off of Arion Parkway and an employee came out and said there was distraught employee that I was supposed to take to flea market because some sort of altercation happened With her son .
Along the way to the flea market she got a call that her son was shot in the head at the Eisenhower flea market and that the gunman was still at large . This was a very difficult ride as she was crying very hard in my car , And losing control of her emotions understandably. She wanted me to hurry up to the hospital but I could not drive past 80 miles an hour in heavy traffic as that would be too dangerous .
When I arrived at the military checkpoint they escorted me to the visitor center where I turned off my app and I walked the lady into the visitors area , I couldn’t just drive away like that . I tried to comfort her as much as I could , there was a line about 30 minutes long for people waiting for passes I walked up to the front and approached the security guard and explained the situation that She was a distraught mother who had received news that her son had been shot and passed away and was at BAMSE .
This was too much for me today I turned off my app after that as it weighed heavy on my mind most of the evening. She’s in my thoughts and prayers tonight

I could not handle the situation as well you did. I might had got myself arrested at the gate for screaming at the guard to get that poor lady through. I am sure that lady in the future will remembered how well you took care of her. Take care and remember you did your best on a very bad situation.
