“Suddenly everyone ran,” recalled witness Brittany Bergstrom, who was in a nearby restaurant. “There was a crush, people were hiding in the bushes, hats and boots were lying on the ground, drinks were spilling everywhere.”
The boyfriend, Brittany said, dragged her behind a brick wall: “And if he wasn’t there, the outcome would have been very different. And that's all I know: everyone rushed to run, and I continued to stand.
According to Allen, two men 26 and 29 years old, as well as a 16-year-old girl, were injured in the shootout near the arena. According to the forecasts, the captain assured, they would all survive.
