When former WDBJ Reporter Vestor Flanagan walked up and gun down WDBJ Reporter Alison Parker and Photographer Adam Ward, he did it in silence.
That according to woman being interviewed live by Parker at the time.
Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Vicki Gardner was also shot by Flanagan but she survived
In her first public comments since shooting, Gardner spoke with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren in an interview broadcast last night.
Gardner said that while being interviewed on live TV Aug. 26, she was paying attention to the camera but noticed something down the walkway.
"I just saw movement and then gunfire. Lots and lots of gunfire," Gardner said. "From that point, it was very chaotic."
Flanagan walked up and opened fire, killing WDBJ-TV cameraman Adam Ward and reporter Alison Parker. Both died of gunshot wounds to the head and body.
Gardner said after the initial shots, she dropped to the ground and got into the fetal position, pretending to be dead.
As he moved about, Flanagan was "very silent" and didn't speak, Gardner said.
The gunman returned and shot her in the back.
"Had I continued to stand, I would not be here talking to you," she said.
Gardner said she thought a bullet had gone through her spine and she would be paralyzed. But that didn't happen. Doctors removed a kidney and part of her colon. She was released from a Roanoke hospital Sept. 7.
