COPY-BR teen wounded in theater shooting recalls horror

WATCH FOR ANDRE MOREAU'S EXTENDED INTERVIEW WITH BONNIE KATE POURCIAU SUNDAY ON WAFB 9NEWS AT 10.

The Baton Rouge teenager wounded in Friday's mass shooting inside a Colorado movie theater says she did not think she would survive the horrifying ordeal.

Bonnie Kate Pourciau, 18, spoke to WAFB's Andre Moreau inside her hospital room in Denver Sunday.

"I didn't think I was going to make it," Pourciau said.  "I was in an excruciating amount of pain, but I had a peace and I just felt like God really just wrapped me up and held me and I was ok."

Pourciau and a friend, Elizabeth Sumrall, were inside the theater when gunfire erupted.  Pourciau was shot in her knee and has undergone surgeries for her injuries.  Sumrall was not injured.

Police say the alleged shooter, James Holmes, opened fire in a theater during a packed midnight showing of the new Batman movie killing 12 and injuring 58.  It later took hours for bomb experts to dismantle a complicated web of trip wires and explosives inside his apartment.
