Funerals Planned; Survivor and Witness Recount Horror
Family members of the victims of Friday's movie theater shooting in Colorado are planning funerals including a Sparks man.
A PRIVATE viewing for Jonathan Blunk's body will be held Thursday, August 2nd from 11am-1pm, and then a PUBLIC viewing will take place from 1pm-5pm at Mountain View Mortuary located at 425 Stoker Avenue.
His service will be held the next day, August 3rd, at Mountain View Mortuary at 9am. The service is open to the public.
An account has also been set up to help the Blunk family. You can donate at any Wells Fargo branch.
The 26-year-old served three tours in the Middle East, and planned to re-enlist with the goal of becoming a Navy SEAL.
A service for 18-year-old A.J. Boik is scheduled Friday in Aurora.
Meanwhile, additional details of the shooting are emerging from a witness and a wounded theatergoer.
Stephanie Davies and Allie Young, who were at the movie together, say the gunman moved around the theater, yelling and seemingly targeting people.
Davies, who is 21, says the shooter would shout, "What are you doing? I said stand up!" She says he would then pick people up and shoot them.
Her 19-year-old friend was shot in the neck, damaging her carotid artery and knocking her into the aisle. Davies says she applied pressure to the wound and also managed to call 911.
She says, "We were laying there in the mouth of hell -- there's smoke and explosions and guns, bats flying across the screen because the movie's still playing. It's dark." She called it "every child's worst nightmare."
An account has also been established online for all of the victims.
