“The butt of the gun kept hitting my head,” he told 12 News. “The blood was just pouring out of my head."

After Gee and the 13-year-old were arrested, Manuel said he was relieved to hear about the arrests and was just thankful to be alive.

Manuel said he plans to continue working for Uber Eats, but will no longer take delivery orders at night.
