“So there’s glass flying and I’m kind of going like that and I went to bring my left arm up to get my hand on it, it kind of just flopped. So it didn’t’ work so I just started shooting as fast as I could,” said Lopez.
Jason Wood pleaded guilty to the shooting and other crimes. He was sentenced to 52 years in prison.
