“My boyfriend shoved me under the table, we all got under the table, then next thing I know, him and my uncle are on the guy who was shooting,” said Cierra Buchmann.
Buchmann said her boyfriend, uncle, and another man jumped into action.
“Tackled him, and then held him down,” said Buchmann. “I know Corey had his fingers, put his foot on him, trying to make sure he can’t get up. They took the gun, put it on the bar, he was down.”
Before the suspect was subdued, he is accused of shooting Randy Jenereaux who worked at the pub.

“This was a horrible nightmare for all our customers and workers. Our hearts are broken for our coworker Randy and his family,” it read.
Meanwhile, his sister, Amber says Randy’s twin, Andy, was the one who rushed him to the hospital in hopes to save his life.
“My brother was full of life, he could make anyone laugh,” she said in a statement. “He would give you the shirt off his back. My brother is not confrontational and this was selfish to take him from his family.”
Witnesses said there was no arguing or any type of altercation when the man started shooting.
Police say the bar hasn’t been a problematic place and customers are fortunate nobody else was hurt.
