A survivor of a Missouri shooting has described her ordeal in the triple murder of Demetrius & # 39; Meechie & # 39; Davis.
Yolanda Solano, 51, survived the shooting on April 25, 2018, who killed her boyfriend, son, and neighbor at her home in St. Louis, Missouri.
Davis, 28, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, and Solano, who was wounded, took the position on Tuesday.
Solano said: & # 39; After he shot me the first time, God said to me, "Kill dead and play dead, because that's the only way to get out."
After killing Solano & # 39; s friend Brandon Stephenson, 36, her son Timothy Solano, 20 and Melissa Tierney, 40, a neighbor, Davis found Solano to come out of the bathroom and shot her, prosecutor Tom Dittmeier.
& # 39; I fell to the floor, & # 39; said Solano. & # 39; I wasn't breathing. I didn't move and just was bleeding. I thought I'd die. & # 39;
While on the bathroom floor, Solano said she heard Davis say: & # 39; I got them all & # 39; as he walked out of the house, according to the St. Louis after shipment said.
& # 39; I thought Demetrius and I were friends, & # 39; Solano said to jury members. & # 39; I don't think he cares that he shot me. & # 39;
Survivor triple murder Yolanda Solano testified Tuesday that she & # 39; fell to the ground & # 39; after she was shot in April 2018. & # 39; I wasn't breathing. I have not moved & # 39;
The house in St. Louis, Missouri, where three people were killed in an April 2018 spree, is depicted. One witness and survivor told jury members & # 39; I thought I was going to die & # 39;
Her brother hid in his bedroom and was not injured.
Solano, who had suffered wounds to her hands and face, explained to the jury that she escaped through a bedroom window and stumbled to a neighbor for help, leaving a blood test in her wake.
According to her testimony, Solano said the shootings were the result of an arsenal of guns in her house that had been stolen from another house a week earlier.
Davis had to mediate & # 39; those weapons & # 39 ;, Solano said, as a plan to sell the weapons.
But Davis defense lawyer, Nick Zotos, told jurors that there is no physical evidence that connects Davis to the shooting and not a murder weapon.
He also spent time discrediting Solano, focusing on her long-term addiction to painkillers and heroin.
Timothy Solano was one of three murder victims in a home in St. Louis, Missouri in 2018. His mother Yolanda Solando survived the shooting and testified during the trial against Demetrius Davis
She had onewas in prison this year in Idaho for drugs and heroin overdose twice, the Post-Dispatch said.
& # 39; I've probably tried all the drugs out there, & # 39; she said, adding that she was sober for 52 days.
At the time of the shooting, Solano told jurors that she had not used heroin for at least two days and had withdrawal symptoms.
Zotos accused her of lying – said she was high and could not clearly remember.
& # 39; I am honest and know who shot me, & # 39; she said.
The assistant public prosecutor Dittmeier calls the crime & # 39; a story about treason and execution in cold blood & # 39 ;.
