But many survivors had little to say about gun legislation - for now - or the shooter's motives. Like I said, a coward. "I was in so much shock and pain at the time that I felt like I couldn't even breathe".

"We pray for the swift recovery of the shooting victims, including a member of the LAPD family who was shot and is recovering from her wounds", according to the union.

After he was pronounced dead, she said she leaned over, kissed him and hugged him, but then doctors told her they were bringing in another trauma. "She's tough as nails and just the salt of the earth", Al said.
