“I looked down, and next thing I know I hear a ‘bop bop bop’ and looked up at the crowd and saw people scattering,” witness Eboni Watson said. “Then I seen like two people hit the floor.”

Watson caught the shooting on camera during a Facebook live she started seconds before the first shot went off. She said this time last year she herself was the victim of a drive-by shooting.

“At that moment I just thought about when I got shot, and when I got shot I covered up a child. So my instant thing was to make sure that baby was safe, but this time I’m not going to lie I didn’t think about nobody else. It was more so my sake.”

CBS 2 has been reporting on unofficial gatherings that have turned violent throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now that the state has reopened and people are out, Watson hopes the problem does not continue to get worse.
