"Lulu" Campbell recaps on that night, "Oh my god they are going to rob me here," she says she was dropping off her grandson after checking on one of her much business, the Shell gas station on Riverside Drive when she saw one man appear at her window, she began to fear for her life.
She said he was treating to kill her, "He told me he was going to shoot through the window and he did. I was afraid for my life so I had to fight back," and as she begins to fight back she realized that the shooter was not alone. "Oh my god there are two of them," she says.
Luisa says she is always armed with two guns as she does her daily business, and after being robbed she says her guns alone just aren't enough. "For me I am always shaking and I have a body guard," adds Campbell. Even with a bodyguard, the fear of the second suspect coming back for her never left her mind, but she says if he came back she would be ready.
"I have nervous breakdown so bad. When they come close to me, my hand is already on the gun," says Campbell.
“Lulu” says she feels safe now that the second man accused of robbing her has been arrested and now she can walk freely but won't get rid of her body guard any time soon.
