NOW: Witness speaks after gun fires off in Red Robin

MISHAWAKA, Ind. - Days after a gun fired off inside the Mishawaka Red Robin, a witness, who had his two-month old son with him at the time, is speaking out.

“Well we just sat down for a regular dinner with the family...and then bang!” said Alex Bealor, who was eating in Red Robin when the gun fired.

According to a police report filed that Saturday night, an unknown suspect dropped a handgun on the ground, and it fired, shooting through the ceiling.

“I grabbed my son’s little car seat thing, ...and the guy was scrambling around on the ground," said Bealor.

He said his heart was racing as he tried to decide what to do.

Before he could make a decision, he said the suspect picked his gun up and walked out.

“Thankfully, I mean, you know the bullet went up instead of into anybody around, because you know the restaurant was packed," said Alex.

Sitting on a bench with me a few days later, he says he's still in shock, thinking about what could have happened.

“My two month old was with me. I was like. It just makes you start thinking, what if, what if, what if?" he said.

Red Robin sent ABC 57 News the following statement: "As far as we know, this type of incident has never before happened at a Red Robin restaurant."

Police are still investigating this incident.
