While some of the attackers have been successfully apprehended, others are being carried on stretchers and placed inside an ambulance. The police and paramedics are currently dealing with the aftermath of the horrid onslaught of these yet-to-be-identified gunmen. On the other hand, both the hotel staff and customers alike are still in the middle of regaining their bearings.
It has been one terrible night for everyone. Along with the trauma is a few losses.
Fortunately for the people who had a direct encounter with the pursuers, nothing too serious had been inflicted other than a few minor injuries.
"You okay there, Asher?" Charles asked as he watched a paramedic treat his companion's wound.
"It's fine, it's fine. The bullet didn't really go through," Asher coolly replied while his injured arm was being wrapped with a bandage.
