AURORA, CO - One of the women who escaped a mass shooting at a Denver suburb movie theater says the shooter pointed a gun at her face but then shot people seated behind her.
Twenty-five-year-old Jennifer Seeger, of Aurora, says she was in the second row, about four feet from the gunman. She says she "was just a deer in headlights" and ducked to the ground.
Seeger says bullet casings were falling on her head and burning her forehead as the gunman fired steadily, except when he stopped to reload.
She says it was "boom, boom, boom" every few seconds and the gunman shot anyone who tried to leave.
Seeger says she began crawling toward an exit when she saw a girl about 14 years old "lying lifeless on the stairs."
