“There were bullets flying they were like phew, flying straight through you, like literally feet from us,” Rafael Martinez said.

Martinez and his friends were just leaving a nearby club when the shots rang out. They rushed to try and help the fatally wounded McClain.

“You are looking at them in their eyes and they don’t know what’s going on. They’re looking in the air like and I’m telling her, 'You are going to be okay, you are going to make it.' And then she didn’t make it,” Martinez said.
