Another man, Brandon Bonney, said his brother called him from inside the store saying "Bro, I'm inside Walmart, and there's a shooting here." Bonney told his brother Edward to "just get somewhere safe and hide." That is when Edward started to cry and his brother told him to keep the phone on silent and stay calm. Brandon Bonney hasn't heard from his brother since.
