A member of the Milwaukee Bucks video game team who was shot in a mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida over the weekend took to Twitter to thank the man he says saved his life. 

In a tweet, Timothy Anselimo—who goes by the gamer name “oLarry”—thanked Jordan Williams, who he said helped him get to shelter and applied pressure to his gunshot wounds until EMTs arrived. 

“This Pic Brings Tears. After Being Shot 3 Times I Couldn’t Lay Down And Give Up. I Ran For My Life And Saw This Guy Who Took Me Into Hooters For Shelter, Wrapped All My Wounds And Applied Pressure Until The EMT Arrived.  Jordan Williams, You Are My Hero. You Helped Save My Life,” he tweeted.

Two people were killed in the shooting. Nine others were injured by gunshot wounds and two more were hurt trying to escape.
