Lezlie Stacey told the judge she then saw Bloebaum tuck the gun into his pants and put a phone to his ear, saying “there was a man down at Target.”
Bloebaum then kept others from administering aid to the victim, Stacey testified.
She testified never seeing Yousif holding a knife but said an object she later identified as a knife fell from him as he collapsed.
Another witness identified Bloebaum as the man who prevented her from helping the victim, who was lying face down on the pavement.
“The guy told me, ‘Don't go near that body because I already shot him,'” Sherise Brannon testified. “He kept telling me to get away.”
She said she stood by helplessly as Yousif took his last breath.
Brannon testified she also saw Bloebaum use a phone, and overheard him saying a guy pulled a knife on him and he shot him.
Brannon said she saw a knife fall from Yousif's hand.
Special Judge D. Fred Doak found probable cause for Bloebaum to stand trial. A pretrial conference is set for April 17.
