Aurora shooting victim used military and religious training to help wounded

Pastor Darrel Wilmoth was in the adjacent theater from shooter James Holmes when he heard loud popping sounds. Wilmoth says, "We didn't know what that was. I actually thought it was some fireworks. But I'd gotten something that didn't click right with me as I’d gotten hit in the leg." It was then the Colorado Pastor realized he had been hurt. Once alerted that there was a gunman on the loose, Wilmoth ran outside, where he was able to use his military and religious training to treat victim's with bullet wounds and pray with them.

Pastor Wilmoth shares his story with Starting Point's Soledad O'Brien.
