Also, Shoot your gun into the air so all the civilians run so you can progress.

I was like, "what do I do..." so I walked toward the path and a guy punched me. So, I proceeded to aim my gun in his face. He didn't move so I said, eh, he had it coming and shot. My bad lol =D

Such an emotional part of the story. Don't shoot the civilians, against your better judgement.

You can also smack one of the civilians to save ammo.

I only shot the civilians cause did not know what else to do. The game wouldn't let me leave the way we came in, so it looked like the only way I could go was by shooting. It wasn't until I had got off that I realized that shooting in the air could be another way. T_T
