All the while, Bayri was thinking he would be next as the shooter came closer.”I saw the boy beside me — I didn’t know him but I took him straight to myheart — had fallen down,” Bayri said. The boy was shot three times, he said.I tried to keep his wounds shut while the attacker was still shooting. The shots were getting closer. And I thought to myself: ‘This is it.
