    “While the shooting happened a bullet ricochet and hit my foot, and once the shooting shopping we ran away," Kent said. "I waved down ambulance -- and they stopped.

    "When it happened, every time they shot, I was hoping they wouldn’t hit me. Really glad to be alive.”

    Kent was here specifically for this event. He said one of his friends was also shot and was badly injured.

    "(My friend Larry) was shot two times," Kent said. "He’s one of the ones in critical condition. Hopefully, he comes through." 

    Three people who said they were at the Madden NFL Championship Series, tweeted about the incident shortly after shots rang out:

    Another witness from outside the tournament said he tried to help save people after the shooting. The witness said, "I applied pressure to the pulse, there was no pulse. When I took my shirt off, my brand new white T-shirt that I had, I applied pressure to the wound. I felt the pulse, I felt the pulse and then he spit up a little blood."

    EA Sports Madden NFL tweeted about the shooting:
