WNCT’s Kara Gann visited the area where the incident took place and spoke to a man who said his brother, Félix Gonzaga Bailón, was the victim who died at the scene.
“The only thing that went through our mind was that they were going to shoot us as well,” said Miguel A. Gonzaga Bailón. We were shocked, we didn’t know what to do. At the end of it, they attacked him (the victim). We were all scared, we didn’t know what to do.”
He said he was also inside during the robbery, and he was scared for his life and shocked and did not know what to do. They were all very scared.
Now the family of Bailón is preparing for his funeral in the coming days.
