A pregnant woman was shot to death and a witness
says the man who tried to shield her from the bullets is in the
hospital. The shooting happened in Pratt Wednesday night near Ninnescah
"The only thing I can think of is sitting there and watching the
woman just die. And he was just laying there, I was holding his hand the
whole time," said Zachary Wright.
Wright witnessed the
shooting. His brother Brandon Wright was shot and he held his hand until
help arrived. Wright says his brother Brandon will likely be paralyzed
from the waist down.
Wright says he and the two victims were walking in front of a house,
where a man was yelling racial slurs. He says the man demanded that
they get off his property, but he says they were on the sidewalk.
That's when a fight started between his brother and the man.
"They started to scuffle. And then the guy got loose and went inside.
When he came back out he had a gun in his hand. I said, 'Run, Brandon,
there's a gun. Run.'"
He says Brandon turned to protect the pregnant woman.
"He protected her. Yeah, he didn't want her to get shot. He didn't
have a chance to run. And he ended up getting shot four times in the
back. And then she got shot in the head, and so she's dead," he said.
Police arrived and arrested 21-year-old Bryant Seba. Seba was booked on second-degree murder and aggravated battery charges.
Wright says when Seba came out of the house with police he was
smirking and continued yelling racial slurs at them. Wright says he now
just hopes justice is served because the fight ruined people's lives.
"Three lives because she was pregnant. She was a good woman. She was a
good mother. She loved her family. She was just family oriented. She
was a good person," he said.
He says his brother has a bullet lodged in his spine and doctors
don't think they can remove it. So he says they expect Brandon to be
paralyzed from the waist down. He says they've been able to speak with
Brandon and he could hear them, but he had trouble responding to them.http://www.kwch.com/kwch-jab-one-killed-one-hurt-in-pratt-shooting-20130725,0,1589065.story
