However, things didn’t work out that way. As Epps made his way to the exit, he and his nemesis ran into each other. From the security footage you can see, Epps charging at the man who remains off screen most of the time. A little after the incident outside, Epps is seen back at his table as other patrons continue to dance. Next thing you know, drinks are flying across the room. While you can’t see anyone pull out and fire a gun, you can see people ducking and running for cover.
