“I thought it was a bad nightmare. Whatever happened after that was instinct,” Lindsey Duncan said. “All of a sudden, hell began’

He struggled to fight back tears as he explained what he remembered from the shooting.

“(He) ran to my wife’s driver’s side with a gun and held it about 10 inches from her head,” Duncan said.

FIRST REPORT: ‘Shootout’ near Yellow Springs could have been ambush, sheriff says

In two separate gun battles, bullets were flying inches past his wife’s head. 

“Her being alive today … I’ll never be able to explain that,” Duncan said. “It wasn’t one shot or two shots. It seemed like 100 shots, and there were shells everywhere.”

Molly Duncan said: “I’m extremely thankful to be alive. I’m a mother and I still get to see my kids grow up.”

The couple thanked the Greene County Sheriff’s Office and Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for their support in the days following the shooting.

Lindsey Duncan said law enforcement was “exactly right” to say the pair ambushed him in his driveway. 

Molly Duncan said the Sanderses made no effort to discuss any issue. 

“The word ambush is exactly what it was,” Molly Duncan said. “We were caught off guard. They said nothing and they started shooting at us.”
