"Oh my god. I heard something last night and I didn't think anything about it," she says. "It must have been eight or nine o'clock ... I heard something and it sounded like a pop gun. Like it was really quiet."

In the footage, Cheyenne clarifies it didn't sound to her like an actual firearm. She explains it sounded more like a toy and she didn't think anything of it at the time.
