This evening, while Brevard School Board Member Jennifer Jenkins and her husband were waiting to be seated at the Garden Street restaurant in Washington D.C., gun fire erupted from the street.
They ran for cover where Jenkins was hit by debris from the shooting, and could hear pinging sounds from the rounds flying around them.
They ran inside a restaurant and hid behind a wall in a staircase.
“I literally thought one of us was hit,” Jenkins said on the phone to us. “It was terrifying.”
