Eye Witness Narrate Horrific Moment
An eyewitness of the mass shooting at the Boulder grocery store narrated the horrific incident. He said that he was on his way to pick up coffee at the King Soopers on Table Mesa Dr. when he saw a terrible sight after shots were fired. "I was in shock, initially when we realised what was happening. I called up my mom and said I was ok. The fact that it is happening all over America, something I have grown up with, people of my generation and my age are used to this."
"I've been assigned to monitor the @KingSoopers scene - overnight. Watching law enforcement do their jobs in a packed parking lot. The coroner's office removing one of the deceased. A tow truck removing a car is surreal sadness," said another witness of the horrific mass shooting.
