Evelyn Solorzano, 14, holds her mother, Alejandra Solorzano's, hand as they wait to retrieve their belongings from the food court while Winston-Salem police officers investigate the scene of a shooting at Hanes Mall on Monday, July 13, 2020, in Winston-Salem, N.C. Evelyn, her mother, and her 9-year-old sister, Elyanna, were eating in the second-level food court after shopping at J.C. Penney when they heard one shot fired from the first level. After hearing more shots, they panicked and hid behind trash cans. "You know this happens, but you don't think it'll ever happen to you," Evelyn said, still trembling. Alejandra said they usually don't come to the mall on the weekend so they can avoid situations such as this. They thought a Monday afternoon would be safer. Evelyn said her sister is shaken by the incident. "I tried to be strong, for her, so it took a long time to cry," Evelyn said as she began to cry. Evelyn was relieved she remembered to grab her phone so she could call her father, who was at work. He thanked God they were safe.
