The voice of one man can be heard shouting “he’s been shot” repeatedly, as the victim adds “I cannae take it out bro, I cannae take it out. I’ve been shot. A crossbow, right through here, right through my heart and it’s killing me” as he points at his chest.

Footage also shows a man walking around carrying a crossbow and pointing it at another bystander. One man asks him “what are you doing? Why have you got a crossbow?” before he goes back inside.
