‘Thanks for Your Prayers but I Couldn’t Give a F*ck About Them’ Says Capital Gazette Shooting Survivor

 
 
 
Anderson Cooper had two survivors of the shooting at Maryland’s Capital Gazette newspaper on his show Thursday night.

Reporter Selene San Felice said she was doing fine—considering she’d just watched someone die.

In an emotional interview she recounted to Cooper covering the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Florida where she went to school, and hearing survivors talk about texting their families as they hid from a shooter. And then, today, she was at work and hiding from a shooter.

San Felice says she’s still making sense of the tragedy but knows she’ll want to advocate for policy change.

“I don’t know what I want right now but I’m gonna need more than a couple days of news coverage and thoughts and prayers…thanks for your prayers but I couldn’t give a f*ck about them if there’s nothing else,” she told the unfazed CNN host.
