(KMOV)-- Ranisha Cole died after she and eight other teenagers were shot outside “The Pulse” nightclub on North Broadway Christmas night.

Two other teenagers in the car with Cole that night described what they saw happen to News 4 on Monday.
Shaquita and Tiffanie Nelson sat next to Cole in the backseat of a car when the shots rang out.
“She was like ‘I can’t see anything, everything is going blurry’ and stuff,” Shaquita said talking about Cole.
“Her eyes were rolling back in her head. We were breathing in her mouth,” Tiffanie recalled.
The girls’ brother, Cole’s boyfriend, was also in the car.
The group drove Cole to the hospital, carried her inside, but she died, suffering gunshot wounds to the chest and stomach.
Cole’s boyfriend was questioned by police and held on separate charges.
Police say a party scheduled for another location, “The Wherehouse,” was canceled after the building was condemned for occupancy.
Teens that originally planned on attending that party went to “The Pulse” after word spread it would be held there instead.
Shaquita and Tiffanie say fights broke out when some younger teens were not allowed in the club.
The girls called their brother to pick them up when he arrived with a friend.
For now, Nelson is being held by police, who tells News 4 they are still investigating who was involved.
