With a long, four-day weekend ahead, I expect the prosecution to arrange for very memorable and emotional testimony today.
Judge Samour ready to start the day
- New Witness
The people call Lauren Schuler... but someone else "for logistical reasons".... so the people call Shirley Clark instead
Clark referenced in COUNT 157-Criminal Attempt to Cornmit Murder in the First Degree (F2) and COLTNT 158-Criminal Attempt to Commit Murder in the First Degree (F2)
Clark attended with the Jackson family
Clark found seats in 2nd row, left side
Clark "i remember the exit door to the right swinging open and a guy came in with armor and he threw a smoke bomb"
Objection, leading. overruled.
Clark "it just seemed like a guy came in with a lot of big black armor, that's all i could see"
Clark couldn't see weapon. "I could just see fire sparks"
Clark "i just remember everyone screaming and crying"
Clark tears up describing the gunfire "really loud, and repetitive"
Clark says Armani threw her down, she hit her head ducking behind the seats
Clark "I just heard people just screaming and so then everyone was running out, trampling over each other."
Clark says she and Armani ran
