An 18-year-old Atlanta native livestreamed the moment after three men opened fire on her car as she, her mother, and a friend were ordering from a Burger King drive-thru in Florida early Tuesday morning.
According to the Miami Herald, Donesha Gantt was with two women at a Burger King in Opa-locka, when three gunmen shot a total of eight bullets into the vehicle. The driver, who was not hurt, managed to drive the car 70 yards from where the shooting occurred.
Gantt then livestreamed what she possibly believed were her final moments, saying she knew the men who shot her, but forgives them. The teen was reportedly shot three times in her stomach and once in her arm.
“If I die, Godforgive me for all my sins,” she said. The two-minute and 36-second cellphone video Gantt displayed on her Facebook page Tuesday shows her crying and screaming. Appearing to speak with her mother, she says she feels as if she’s going to pass out.
“Ma, I’m shot three times. Ma I’m bleeding,” she says.
Then, “There’s a bullet in me. Oh my God.” She appears at one point to be forgiving the shooters. “It’s good,” Gantt says. Another woman in the car tells her repeatedly to calm down.
Police are investigating why the women were targeted. Paramedics airlifted Gantt and the other injured woman to the hospital, where they are listed in stable condition. Although Gantt said she knew the gunmen in the video, she refused to tell police who they were.“I would rather die than say who shot me,” she said according to the report.
