One witness, Ayveel Robinson, told DC News Now’s Randi Bass in an interview Monday he could not believe what he went through Saturday night.
He’d been to CRU nightclub multiple times before, saying he felt safe in the past.
Robinson and a friend went out for drinks and hookah that night and started to leave the club just as shots rang out on the second floor.
“Immediately as the shots rang out, I fell down the stairs as I was trying to duck for cover,” Robinson said. “I was able to crawl my way out of the club.”
After he made it out, he saw Bozeman stumble out of the bar behind him and collapse to the ground.
Robinson said police were there in less than 30 seconds, and EMS crews were there within a few minutes.
“During the night I screamed a couple times, ‘I can’t believe this happened, I can’t believe this happened,'” he said.
In the days that have followed the shooting, he said he’s found the sounds of loud, popping packages and plastic wrap to be triggering, reminding him of the gunshots that just barely missed him on Saturday.
