Angela says when she first saw the gun she thought of her family. "It was so overwhelming, so scary, but something just took over with me," she says. "A higher power took over."

Angela says Greg could have taken anything he wanted, but something held him back. "He said, 'I have to do this,'" she says. "I said: 'No, you don't have to do this. Nothing can be bad enough for you to lower yourself to something so bad.'"

Angela says Greg told her was out of work and on the verge of becoming homeless. "I [saw] some tears come in his eyes, and my heart just broke for him," she says. "I just looked at him like: 'Why is this young man throwing life away? Life is so precious.'"
