A woman says it was “senseless and horrible” that she was shot and the man she was on a first date with was killed outside a popular Atlanta bar.

The shooting outside Church bar left 32-year-old Mitchell Mormon Jr. dead. Shaunita Walker says her new friend and another man got into an argument, then the man pulled out a gun.

“And when I heard the first shot and it went into my arm, and I just grabbed my arm and I just began to scream,” Walker said.

Walker had no idea what seemed like a dream was about to turn into a nightmare.

“And then I heard two more shots and I saw Mitchell on the ground,” she said.

Walker says everything was a blur after that.

“And I’m just screaming, ‘Somebody please help us. Somebody please help him,'” she said.

The shooting took place around 3 a.m. Saturday outside of the Church bar on Edgewood Avenue.

Police released surveillance video of two people outside the bar.

Walker recalled how she tried to comfort Mormon after he was shot.
