Celebrating Independence Day

Use the writing prompt below to write a scene.

To celebrate Independence Day on July 4th, you attend a fireworks spectacular with a group of your friends. As the sound of fireworks begins to die down, you hear one more sharp retort, but don’t see the fireworks light up the sky. Thinking it must have been a dud, you turn to see one of your friends writhing in pain on the ground, a gunshot wound in her shoulder. Who wanted to hurt (possibly kill) your friend, and why? And how do you find the answers to those questions?
