First-Hand Account of Shooting
I found this message posted on a music forum, written by someone who was alledgedly at the party during the shootings, though I haven’t been able to confirm that. I blacked out the names, but left everything else as is. It’s pretty terrifying.
i was right here when it happened. it was the scariest hing ive ever experienced. ***** was there, my brother, his three friends, it was at an after party at tthis guys house, ***** and ***** and a couple other people. we all drank and played music and stuff, had a blast, then the party was calming down, some people were out on the front porch smoking, and i thought it was somebody banging really hard on the wall from out thtere over and over again, turned out o be gunshots, a guy opened the front dor to see why people were banging and a guy was laid up against the door with gunshot wounds all over his chest and stomach. he collapsed into the house and ttwo other people came in announced they were shot. then i heard more gunshots so i loked at my brother and said, “come on NOW!” and me him and **** and **** ran out he back dor as fast as we could and jumped a fence to the neighbors house. ***** was shot multiple times and maybe even killed, the police wouldnt release information on who was dead, shot, alive or anything. like 15 people, the only non wounded people, spend the entire day at he police station doing interviews and waiting and i guess this girl ***** was unaccounted for the whole time, not in the survivors section OR the wounded people. but i heard just in a conversatiotn the a police officer MIGHT have escorted her off the property. i dont know though because she should have been there with us. the guy though after shooting as many people as he could (he had a pistol and a shotgun) he shot himself through the head in the face with his shotgun. ive never seen someones insides exposed like that before, i was terrified, i thought for sure he and maybe even whoever might be accompanying him would bust up in the house right away and shoot up everyone, we just ran the other way as fast as we could. im SO glad to be alive and im also INFINITELY grateful that my brother or ***** or none of my brothers friends were hurt. i would have lost my mind if my brother got shot, or even any of his friends. ill work on getting the names of everyone else that was hurt or killed. i know that 7 were not killed, maybe 2 or 3, and then 3 or 4 seriously injured. anyways, i love you and i love life and i do know that this incident has ruined afterpartys for me forever, unless theyre at a venue with security searching people. seriously. well, i hope this brought you some comfort. i cant believe we were there, like 20 feet from a guy with a shotgun and a pistol just unloading on everyone. i shed tears on the ride home, out of appreciation to be alive and in memory of those who didnt make it. ok, ill talk to you in a minute probably. peace and love
