Jessica Ghawi's brother blogged about his 24 year-old sister's final moments. Jordan Ghawi says that his mother called him up "hysterical and almost unintelligible" to let him know that his sister was one of the victims at last night's The Dark Knight Rises midnight showing.
Fifty nine people were shot when neuroscience student James Holmes opened fire after filling the theater with tear gas.
Jordan lives in Texas but traveled to Colorado this morning. He said that Jessica was with one of their mutual friends named Brent.
"Jessica and Brent were seated in the middle portion of the theatre when a device was thrown into the theatre that produced a 'hissing' sound. The theatre then began to fill with smoke which is when patrons began to move from their seats. At that time, shots were fired."
Brent heard Jessica scream and noticed that she was struck in the leg.
"Brent, began holding pressure on the wound and attempted to calm Jessica. It was at this time that Brent took a round to his lower extremities. While still administering first aid, Brent noticed that Jessica was no longer screaming. He advised that he looked over to Jessica and saw what appeared to be an entry wound to her head."
This afternoon Jordan Tweeted: "Let us remember the names of the victims and not the name of the coward who committed this act."
