Oneeyewitness told CBS News that he saw at least one woman injured and he tried to help her.

“Well I saw the victim and she was in the dining room, and she had a leg injury, a gunshot wound. So I put like a tourniquet on her to try and help her. Then the ambulance came and took her away and put a real tourniquet on her,” the eyewitness said.

He added that he said that she told him she had been shot while in the car park.

Another eyewitness told MSNBC that he saw at least two women with gunshot wounds.
