A bleeding man stumbled into a Denny’s restaurant asking for help moments after a shooting in San Pablo, CA back in 2015. A surveillance camera captured two people walking into the restaurant after one had been shot. The uninjured man then abandoned the shooting victim, who begged him, “Can you please don’t go?” and, “Call my baby mana at least,” but the uninjured man said “No, I have to go,” and he ran away.
