(PRATT, Kan.) — 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 and Blaine.
"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.
