Payne said “I noticed a guy laying down there, I didn’t know if he was breathing or what happened, everybody started getting hysterical and loud and, and saying somebody had gotten shot.”
He continued by stating that acts of violence are becoming an all too common occurence. “It’s something people are getting more and more used to, you don’t know if you’re hearing gunshots, or if you’re hearing fireworks.”
