“I’m waiting to wrap up the package before we go live again and all of a sudden I hear all of these shots,” reporter Terrell Forney said. “I hear, ’Pop! Pop! Pop! … and it feels like it never really stopped.”

Photojournalist Nick Lupo saw the shooting, alerted Forney, and took cover behind a steel case to store equipment.

“He was wearing a white shirt and he started shooting and shooting and shooting,” Lupo said. “I was just trying to shield myself from getting hit with bullets.”
