Gear with the mat, a little mask that goes across your face and a black, almost ak kind of type gun. Reporter: Within 30 seconds police on the scene killing the suspect seen here. The crowd franticly searching for friends and loved ones. First responders and good samaritans treating victims on the street. James Williams and holly Redman were two of many who rushed out to help. The hardest part is when they say stop, stop, there's nothing you can do. Reporter: Redman who's cpr certified, immediately started performing cpr on one of the victims. It was me and a girl and a guy took over. He did the chest compressions. I let her hold the wound and I breathed in his breath.

Many, many are waking up and saying that. Thank you, Eva.
