"Johnny was between me and the man who shot him - as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms, and as I grabbed for him, I shouted, 'Hunny, you ok?!' And he only responded, 'Nope! Shot!'" It was too close range, too extreme of a wound for him to survive it, but my god, he fought to stay.
