Transcript: Calif. stylist recalls hearing co-worker beg for her life in. salon massacre
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) ' A hairstylist says he hid in the bathroom of a California salon after a co-worker's ex-husband walked in and started shooting as people screamed and one begged for her life.
Stylist Gordon Gallego says in a grand jury transcript unsealed Thursday that Scott Dekraai walked over to Dekraai's ex-wife Michelle Fournier and blurted out something akin to "this is what you wanted" before shooting.
Gallego told the grand jury he heard another co-worker beg for her life while he was hiding in the bathroom.
The transcript is from January proceedings during which Dekraai was indicted on eight counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in the October rampage at Salon Meritage in Seal Beach.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for 42-year-old Dekraai, who has pleaded not guilty.
