Munich Shooting Witness Thought 'This Is It' as He Comforted Dying Boy

Witnesses to a shooting spree at a Munich, Germany, that killed nine people recalled harrowing scenes of terror and panic Saturday as a memorial grew outside the shopping center that was the scene of a shocking act of violence just the day before.

Huseyin Bayri, 29, who was at the Olympia Einkaufszentrum when an 18-year-old gunman opened fire Friday evening, told reporters that he held a teenager who was shot and comforted him as the victim succumbed to his wounds. All the while, Bayri was thinking he would be next as the shooter came closer.
