Police responded to 13th and Kincaid around 1:45 a.m. Saturday and found a person on the ground with a life-threatening injury from a gunshot wound. Police said the person died at the scene.

"It was crazy, like I was sick to my stomach immediately," Wilson said.

Wilson said he ran out of the Alpha Omega House to find the victim lying on the ground with a bullet hole in his chest.

"That's when I was like okay...I need to start praying," he said.

Wilson said he saw who he believed to be the shooter flee in a black car as he stood there with the victim's friends.

"I'm going off of what I can remember," he said. "I'm just in shock of seeing someone get shot like that and watching them die right frickin' here."

The victim has not been identified, but police said the person who died was not affiliated with the University of Oregon.
