Steve Ostergaard, of Lake Bluff, was attending a conference in Colorado and found himself in the theater next door to the shooting that left 12 people dead and dozens injured, ABC7's news partner the Daily Herald reported.

A bullet whizzed over his head at a key moment in the movie and hit one of the kids he was chaperoning. The teenager had surgery and was recovering back at their hotel.

"There was about an inch in diameter gash in his arm. By the time we had gotten to the lobby, the shooter was shooting at people in the lobby," he told ABC7.
