JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The boarded up windows are a stark reminder of the tragedy that happened at a Southside Wendy's in June. A young woman, a mother, killed at work.
Now, for the first time we're hearing from people who were inside the Wendy's that day in June.

"Someone came into the Wendy's and shot a woman," said one person calling 911. "I need an ambulance," said the caller. "An employee just shot another employee."

It was chaotic that day in June as police and fire crews pulled up to the restaurant. Now, we're hearing what people saw that day.

One witness told police, "I seen him pull his shirt up, and pull a gun out." Another witness says she was behind the register at Wendy's when she saw Thomas Brown come in and approach the victim, Juanese Miller. "He says it's because of you why I lost my job and he shot her twice in the left arm," said the witness.

She tells police she was scared. "I ran for cover. She was already falling and I thought I was going to get hit...He paused for five to six seconds then shot her three more times."

Brown was caught days later and is in jail. He told police he wasn't a bad person and wasn't the cause of this. Brown blames Miller for getting him fired.

He is guilty and needs to remain in jail. Bubba is waiting on him. What a dirt bag!
