Having suffered four bullet wounds and with a friend beside her in critical condition, Donesha Gantt begged the Lord’s forgiveness into a cellphone video recorder.
“If I die, God forgive me for all my sins,” she said.
Gantt, from Atlanta according to her Facebook page, and another woman were shot inside a car trapped in a Burger King drive-through in Opa-locka early Tuesday morning. Police believe they were targeted, but haven’t said why.
The two-minute and 36-second cellphone video Gantt displayed on her Facebook page Tuesday shows her crying and screaming — while appearing to speak with her mother. She says she feels as if she’s going to pass out.
“Ma, I’m shot three times. Ma I’m bleeding,” she says. Then, “There’s a bullet in me. Oh my God.”
She appears at one point to be forgiving the shooters. “It’s good,” Gantt said. Another woman in the car tells her repeatedly to calm down.
Just over a minute into the video, sirens can be heard in the background. Then a paramedic finally arrives.
