MEGYN KELLY (HOST): Can I just ask you about the girlfriend? Everyone's talking about the girlfriend livestreaming the event. We heard the explanation from Mike Tobin, but why wasn't she, I mean she says he's dead, and he wasn't dead at that point. Like I'm not saying 911 could have gotten there, but what the? 

MARK EIGLARSH: I am so glad you brought that up. Look, I don't know how I'd react under similar circumstances. I'd like to think that livestreaming the event as my loved one is in pain, still alive, is the last thing that I would do. I'm glad we have something on video, but the cop also stood there. It didn't look like he was rendering aid. Again, I don't have all the facts, but that troubled me. 

ARTHUR AIDALA: But you also hear the police officer scream at her shortly thereafter in the middle of it, "Don't move. Let me see your hands. Don't move." And she said, "I was afraid if I approached my loved one, I was afraid he was going to shoot me as well."
