Here's part of the testimony from John Carswell, a good friend of Ronnie's:

    William Weber: What did you observe concerning Ronnie?

    John Carswell: Well, I just -- on that day I drove into the parking lot, and Ronnie and Mindy was there already. And he was there with Mindy. And he had, I guess, a revolver or gun in his hand. Definitely it was a gun. And he shot it off in the parking lot. And I went up to him, I said, "What are you doing?" And I took the thing away from him and I threw it back in his car. Took the clip out of it, threw it under the seat so he couldn't find it, because it was dark. I talked to him for a little while.

    William Weber: Prior to your taking the gun from him, did Ronnie do or say anything to you?

    John Carswell: Yes he did. He said, "I'm going to go inside. I'm going to get him." That's all he said. I asked him about what. He said, well, they fired Mindy, blah, blah, blah.
