My dog bit a friends child today...PLEASE help I am desperate?

My best friend was over at my house today and our son's were playing in my child’s room, (our dog was in there first and they followed her in). After about 5 minutes of them being in there we heard a growl and then a second later a snapping sound and then her son screamed. Mine was still playing when we ran in the room and only then did he cry because we scared him by accident. He was obviously not alarmed by what happened just the aftermath. But her son had been bitten on the eye area- one tiny puncture wound from looks like a single tooth and just redness around the rest of his eye. We immediately cleaned the wound and calmed him down. I put my dog in our bedroom locked in our large closet for the time being. She doesn’t want to press charges or anything or even call animal control for any reason, but what I am struggling with is should WE get rid of the dog? I know that he was more than likely (almost completely positive about this, even though I did not see it happening) doing something mean to her that provoked her- but it could happen again right? Or could it have just been an isolated incident? Here’s some background on the situation:
