Josh, furious and panicked, pulled out a knife and shouted to Mary "Oh well, so I'll kill you with this knife!" The moment he said that, a gunshot and then loud laughter was heard. Josh was even more furious after hearing the gunshot.

Did Josh successfully kill Mary? Was Mary killed by the gunshot? Was the person who fired the gunshot Mary, or another person? Do Mary and Josh know this person? Was Josh furious because of the gunshot, or what happened due to the gunshot?

Is this part of a play? Is Mary in genuine danger?

Did the other person intentionally shoot to antagonise Josh? Did he/she laugh to intentionally provoke Josh? Did the gunshot have anything to do with Josh threatening Mary?

Think we've hit this one early, sorry
So Josh and Mary are acting in a play?
And is there a point in the play where Josh is supposed to shoot Mary? But the gunshot sound effect doesn't work when he pretends to fire the gun? So as a panic ad-lib, he pulls a knife? At which point the gunshot sound effect does go off? Leading to much laughter from the audience, and embarassment for Josh?
