Thinking that she was going to die, Jennifer Stevens, 22, made a desperate call to her mother, after being shot in the stomach during the San Bernardino massacre. See her terrified message.
Just horrific. Jennifer Stevens was attending her office’s Christmas party in San Bernardino on Dec. 2, when an attacker opened fire, shooting her in the abdomen. As she lay on the ground amongst the bloodshed, waiting for refuge, the 22-year-old left a voicemail for her mother, in the moments when she though she was going to die. “Mom, I’m at work, and I’ve been shot,” she said.
Thank God, Jennifer was one of the 17 victims who were shot but survived the massacre. Fourteen others, sadly, were not so lucky.
Jennifer is, thankfully, now in stable condition, and is recovering from an emergency surgery which she underwent on the evening of the shooting. She is expected to make a full recovery.
Sadly, Jennifer had just started working at the San Bernardino County Environmental Services Department a few weeks prior to the deadly events, serving as an environmental technician. Jennifer also recently graduated from college, having received a degree in environmental science at UC Riverside, according to The Sun.
The suspected shooter, Syed Farook, 28, reportedly opened fire on the holiday party, held by the company for which he had worked for five years. He was reported to have attended the party for some time, before leaving. Eyewitnesses said that he seemed angry when he left.
Syed reportedly returned to the party some time later, accompanied by his wife, Tashfeen Malik, 27. The two opened fire, killing 14 individuals and wounding 17 others, before fleeing in an SUV.
A chase ensued, followed by a shootout between the two suspects and police. The situation came to a close, when Syed and Tashfeen were both engulfed by gunfire and killed.
