The boy, who was not identified by KENS-TV, said the 18-year-old gunman shot through a door, entered the room and announced, “It’s time to die.”

The boy told the TV station that he and four others hid under a table that had a tablecloth draped over it.

“When I heard the shooting through the door, I told my friend to hide under something so he won’t find us,” he said. “I was hiding hard. And I was telling my friend to not talk because he is going to hear us.”
