One word lead to the other what was a small intended conversation developed to a fight that ended up with Asaad shooting Walid in his shoulder and his uncle in the stomach when he was trying to get a hold of him and calm him down. His children with frightened eyes and his wife 's tears and screams never separated his mind as he was dragged by the police.
