The people call Louis Duran
Duran mentioned in: COUNT 32-Criminal Attempt to Cornrnit Murder in the First Degree (F2) and COLNT 90-Crirninal Attempt to Commit Murder in the First Degree (F2)
Duran also involved in the federal lawsuit against the theater, scheduled for 2016
Duran attended with Ryan Limbaugh (sp?)
Duran found other friends saved him some seats, but they asked to trade to get a better view of the screen
Duran "I see something get thrown across the movie theater"
Duran: "A lot of smoke started to appear."
King objects to Duran saying "as i know now, it was tear gas"
Duran: "Looking at the theater, it was coming from the right side" he says about the flashes he saw and bangs he heard
Duran: Like others, originally believed it was a prank
Duran's diagram admitted to evidence
Duran "I looked to my left and, i didn't know these people, but i saw them throw themselves on the ground. I start hearing yelling and screaming and i looked once more in front of me and i'm starting to realize maybe it is not a prank. In that moment when i realize that it is not a prank, i get hit on the right side of my head."
Duran: "As soon as that happened I stood up and threw myself on the ground"
Duran: "I knew I got hit in the head with something. I thought for sure it hit my brain or something because I'm not able to move my right arm. Didn't think I was going to make it."
Duran: "I reached down to my left pocket, grabbed by phone. I called the most important person in my life, my mother..." Interrupted by objection.
Duran: "I stopped hearing gunshots and I started noticing people getting up and running out of the nearest exit"
Duran: "I was able to get myself up and I knew that maybe I had a chance to live"
Duran: "I was able to crawl out of the exit and there was a gentleman there who grabbed me and helped me down the stairs."
Duran: Saw his friend Ryan laying on the ground, injured.
Duran: After being helped down the stairs, got outside and said no police/ambulance had arrived yet. He became afraid again, yelling out for help.
Duran: Asked woman to help remove his shirt and wrap it around his head
