TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) -- WK Binger works just down the road from where a man opened fire Friday night.
“They say I got a bullet in my jaw,” Binger said in a Facebook live.
Police say Binger is one of two people shot near 51st and Peoria.
The first victim was shot outside of CiCi’s Pizza.
Police say the suspect made his way toward China Wok, where Binger was eating dinner.
“He just walked into the restaurant, started cussing at me and then shot me,” Binger said.
Moments later police ran down the suspect, eventually shooting and killing him.
Binger didn't waste any time, he got on Facebook live to share what had happened to him, while driving to the hospital.
“It broke my jaw all up in there,” Binger showed on the video.
“He has a fractured jaw and shattered teeth and really bad gum damage,” employee Fiana Nichols said.
Even so, he was reluctant to go to the hospital because he had work to get done.
“He was here making sure the apron blanks and embroidery were ready for the Girl Scouts today,” Ann Harcourt said.
Two years ago, Binger opened Vintage Sewing Center and Museum.
“The museum was built to share this great treasure of knowledge of these marvelous machines that will soon disappear,” Harcourt said.
Ann Harcourt is a volunteer at the museum.
She says Binger gave these machines a second life, and gives people from all over a chance to learn.
“WK was the spark for all of us,” she said.
When Harcourt heard about the shooting she was shocked.
“An inch higher he would be dead,” she said.
Harcourt and nine others came to the museum, hoping to give back.
“WK is too unique, too fabulous, knows too much and is loved by everybody who meets him,” she said.
Harcourt and the other volunteers will continue to share Binger’s passion until he recovers.
Binger faces several medical bills and surgeries, if you would like more information on how you can help you can visit the Vintage Sewing Center and Museum page.
