@TammyGarrison: OOPS. Should have said "IF there is a sentencing hearing."
@EricS.: Here is a link with 3 interesting video clips from Ben Garcia's testimony:http://bit.ly/1d4ywDz
- New Witness
Prosecution calls shooting survivor Petra Hogan.
Petra Hogan attended the movie with Stephen Barton and Ethan Torrent.
Petra Hogan said she fell asleep during the movie and woke up to the sound of gunshots.
Hogan: "I immediately knew I was in a shooting and I knew there was a possibility of getting shot."
Petra Hogan: "I could hear gunfire and screaming and running."
Petra Hogan said the gunfire was still going on but she tried to stand up because she couldn't breathe. Her friend Ethan pulled her back down. She said she blacked out for the second time.
Petra Hogan: "We army-crawled to the end of the row... I was in front of Ethan... and when I got to the end of the row, I stood up, which was a little difficult for me. I didn't realize there was an exit at the back of the theater so I began walking down the steps... that's when I saw a body in a seat at the end of the row."
Petra Hogan: "The first thought that crossed my mind was 'Was there anything I cold do to help that person?' but the body was just sitting."
"When I got in the ambulance I finally felt safe," Petra Hogan said. She said she cried until she got to the hospital and received medication.
