“What’s it like being shot at? A question people ask because it’s something that less that 1% of our American population will ever experience,” the now-eerie post stated.

“My response has always been the same, not one filled with a sense of pride or ego, but an answer filled with truth and genuine fear/anger,” he continued, before going into several paragraphs of detail.

“What’s it like to be shot at? It’s a nightmare no amount of drugs, no amount of therapy and no amount of drunk talks with your war veteran buddies will ever be able to escape. Cheers boys,” the veteran concluded.

According to KABC, the young man, who had served in Afghanistan, was attending the country music concert with his mother. In the chaos of gunfire, his mom Debbie Allen managed to escape. Christopher was not so lucky.

“I knew. I knew, because I spoke to the person who was with him when he got shot,” Debbie told the media. “He said he got shot in the chest.”

She elaborated that a firefighter tried desperately to save Christopher after he was shot. “He saw Christopher take his last breath,” Debbie Allen said.
