That happened to me once about 25 years ago when I worked in the tire business in a "bad neighborhood" in Chicago (19th and Indiana). A kid brought his bike in and asked on the guys to put air in the tire, and it sounded like a shot when it exploded. Everything came to a halt then, and a few did think someone was shooting. Fortunately, no one shot back and the kid was happy after we replaced his tube.
