Twenty years later the pair are now friends after James reached out to Leroy.

Speaking about the night, James said: “I saw Leroy struggling with my colleague and my colleague nearly had the better of Leroy.

“They were both on the ground on the pavement and then I saw Leroy pull a handgun out, managed to free a hand, pull a handgun out, hit my colleague in the leg. The gun fired, broke my colleague’s collar bone and Leroy told me to disappear.”
