It's hard to forget the video that exposed disgusting conditions inside the Popeyes restaurant located at 7 Mile and Gratiot in Detroit.

Detroit police are investigating a shooting that involves the woman at the center of that video that went viral.

Shakita Jones, who shot the Popeyes video that went viral, was also reportedly seen in another video pulling the trigger of what sounds like a real gun during a confrontation with several people.

Jones said it was a BB gun, and said that ever since her viral Popeyes video, she's been harassed non-stop. One of her friends said Jones has been threatened by random people and people in her past. 

Whether they were bullets or pellets, it doesn't appear that anyone was injured.
