In the video obtained by TMZ, the father is seen sitting on the couch with the kids as a glass behind them shattered and a gunman appeared. Jefferson quickly got down on the ground to cover the children and a bullet is seen piercing through the sofa they were just sitting on. Bullets entered Johnson’s right thigh and boot. Despite him being released from the hospital, he can’t walk and still needs additional surgery.
