That is what I thought, I mean is it normal for that much smoke to come from "smokeless ammo"?

Smoke doesn't make it go off, heat does. It has a low temp heat sink on the sprinkler. Just like in the movies they always show the whole system going off, only the ones where the heat is will go off. They only need about 175 degrees to go off. Actually heat sink isn't the correct term but I don't remember what it is called.

Fusible link.

And on some Dry Stack systems, (no water in the lines until the system is tripped) if one in a room goes off, they will all go off. Don't ask how I know!

Yes to answer someone's question it can get that smoky. Also it looked like the BG sill had a gun under his right arm? Or is that not a gun? Maybe the clerk was hoping he'd grab it so he could smoke him?

In most indoor shootings, the smoke detectors and fire suppression systems with low ceilings activate. This is caused by the gun powder (yes, even though it's smokeless), and the primers. This is especially true if multiple rounds are fired.
