FROM THE SCENE: Colorado Theater Shooting Victim Tells Witness Account, Says Friend Is Still Missing
In a sad witness account, 22-year-old Resharee Goodlow (pictured above) has spoken out to media about her missing friend who accompanied her to the Dark Knight Rises midnight showing on the tragic night of the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting.....
Resharee was able to escape suspected gunman James Holmes' hundreds of gunshots fired via 3-4 guns into the crowded theater in Aurora, Colorado during the midnight showing of Dark Knight Rises Thursday. But her good friend, whom she went to the theater with, is still missing.
Resharee says she and her friend were not able to sit together due to the theater being mostly filled to capacity. And when the gunshots started, she terrifyingly lost track of her friend. She tells FOX News & The NY Daily News about having to escape while pushing through several bloody bodies:
“By the third gunshot I knew it was real,” she said. She remembers running from the theater and seeing people lying on the ground in blood-soaked clothes. "I just don’t want to believe the worst,”
“I dropped to the floor,” Goodlow said. “I was just pushing everybody in front of me out the door.”
CNN reported that 10 of the 12 fatalities have still not been identified.
More details about the shooter's actions have been revealed. The Denver Channel states that he unloaded his .40 caliber and shotguns & rifles nto the crowd, after watching the movie for a few minutes and leaving, then returning in full battle gear.
According to sources, he had nine clips in an ammo carrier and police found at least three .40-caliber magazines, a shotgun and a large drum magazine on the floor when they arrived.
One source believed the ammo drum for the AR-15 had jammed sometime during the shooting.
Sources describe an eerie scene with dying and wounded people on the floor, strobe lights flashing through the smoke, screaming sirens and the Batman movie playing in the background.
The incident started with Holmes in the theater watching a movie for a few minutes. Witnesses said he left and returned dressed in the body armor and tactical gear, according to sources.
He threw what appeared to be tear gas grenades and began firing three weapons -- a 12-gauge shotgun, a .40 caliber Glock pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle, according to sources.
It has also been reported Holmes took Vicodin a couple of hours prior to the evil tragedy.
