A witness named Ced Mogul, who was among those who saw the video footage, said someone in the crowd was robbed of his watch, keys and wallet before the shots rang out.
“[He asked to] Call his mom and see if we can get extra car keys and make sure, you know, he’s okay and then the shots rang out,” Mogul said. “It was like 13, 14, 15 shots at least. It was very fast, it sounded like an assault rifle.”
He added: “I started running and I looked back but I was like, ‘You know what? Let me duck first and then people started asking me, you know, ‘Can you help me?’ When I realized that people were asking for help, there was nothing you could do about it when you got shot.”
