Fleshing out a story

I have just finished three pages of a new story and the main protagonist has walked 30 steps and driven 5 kilometers till now. There hasn't been a word spoken between the three characters introduced and there has been a death. By the time this story ends there will be 125 characters (out of which only 5-6 will have any bearing on the story), there will be at least 4 shootouts, five flashbacks (one of which relevant to the progress of the story) and at least 5 divorces. All this has to happen within the span of one year.
