On the heels of yet another United States school shooting, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed a 13-year-old who witnessed the horrific events first hand.
Monique Salcido was in the Berrendo Middle School gym in New Mexico when a fellow student removed a shotgun from his bag and opened fire.
Joining Piers Morgan by phone, she detailed what she saw:
"I was walking and he was right behind me, and I turned around and he had this case. And we all went in the gym. And then later on, we were all talking and then we heard gun shots," said Tuesday's guest. "And then the second shot, I turned around and Nathaniel got hit in the face."
The boy to whom Salcido reffered is an 11-year-old who's currently in critical condition. Another student, 13-year-old Kendall, was still in surgery as of late Tuesday night.
Just hours after witnessing her two friends being shot, and then subsequently spending much of the day in a state of lockdown, Salcido closed her live interview with a telling comment:
"I wasn't really scared of what happened," she started. "But I don't want to go to Berrendo anymore because of what happened. I'm afraid it's going to happen again."
