“She got out of the car, she was irate, basically saying she wasn’t going to let anyone jump on her family,” Shell told First Coast. The fight reportedly began after a woman, later identified as Kelly, arrived at the gym with four men.

In an Instagram video captured by a student, Shell can be seen trying to break up the fight. Shell told First Coast News that once he noticed the firearm in her hand, he "grabbed her hand, put her hand down and near her elbow and walked her back out, kept her hand down and pushed her back out the door, just basically told her please don’t shoot our kids."
