I'm pretty sure this surveillance footage is from SAN LOCO on 2nd ave. That looks like the back hallway that leads to the bathroom. Makes sense because that location is right around the block from the crime scene. I really hope that woman is alright.

Yes - it's def the back/side seating at San Loco... where he was the head cashier for many years. not sure how it ties in though. (and it's not surveillance from inside an apt. bldg like the news report said)

Definitely a shot from inside the restaurant- the lamps and tabletops are identical.
