He describes the horrific experience in watching Ashley get shot the night he was with her and Veronica.
“Another bullet came and hit her right in the chest, right in front of me and she just fell right back down,” said Jaimson Toews. “I saw what you never want to see and it was Veronica’s lifeless body lying there.”
Toews and his family are doing what they can to send positive thoughts Ashley’s way. Toews believes she is finding strength from within, “I think that maybe the baby could be her reason to live.”
Toews hasn’t seen Ashley since the shooting. Visitors at the hospital have been limited to immediate family.
