A 24-year-old man identified as Camryn Crowder is being celebrated as one of the heroes of last weekend’s shooting in Dayton which left 9 people dead.
A viral video which has since surfaced showed how Crowder used his body as a shield to protect his girlfriend from gunfire.
Crowder’s baby mama had tripped and fell as they fled the scene. He immediately jumped on her to protect her from the gunfire.
“I saw people getting hit. I literally saw them fall…” Crowder said. “I was certain that I was going to be next in line, really, at some point.
“I was pretty nervous,” he said. “I mean, I thought for sure that it was gonna be my last day really being alive.
The Dayton shooter Connor Betts murdered nine people before he was shot and killed by police.
“It was just a trail of bodies laying there,” Crowder said. “I had seen about four people that had gotten hit. Laying on the sidewalk and in the middle of the street.”
