“What’s going through your mind?” a reporter asked the man.
“Well, Leslie was on my mind,” the eyewitness said, nodding to a woman nearby.
“But at the same time I knew I had to be smart. You gotta be smart. You gotta be fast.”
“I didn’t have a gun on me, but I wish I did,” he added.
It’s worth noting that California has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country in place.
