(NEW YORK) — A man shot four times by his coworker at a manufacturing plant in Kansas recalled how the gunman hesitated before firing.

Adam Miller spoke to ABC affiliate KAKE-TV from his hospital bed after Thursday’s shooting at Excel Industries in Hesston, Kansas. He said he heard someone yell about a shooter and then encountered Cedric Ford, who appeared confused when Miller told him to run.

“I told him again and he said, ‘I know,’ and then he shot me,” Miller said. “He did hesitate before he shot me. It’s like he recognized me.”

Three people were killed and Miller was among 14 injured in the shooting. Police officers fatally shot Ford.

“I don’t know what he was going through,” Miller said of Ford. “Obviously, he felt this was the way out and so my heart just aches for him.”
