"He was laying in front of Cheddar's, bleeding out," said Abdul Alchaar.

Alchaar believes his brother, Khaled Alchaar, would still be alive if he got help sooner. Alchaar rushed to Cheddar's after getting a panicked call from Khaled Monday night.

"It was a six-second call saying, 'I got shot' -- and he hung up," Alchaar said.

Alchaar and his wife rushed to the scene.

Meanwhile, police arrived.

"Police showed up. They are looking for the suspect in the bushes. What about the bleeding victim?" asked Alchaar.

Alchaar did what he could for his little brother during what turned out to be the last moment of his life.

"I'm asking -- 'I need help. Help me with this.' My wife, who is going to be a nurse soon, is like, 'Take off your shirt. I need it.' So I took off my shirt -- she is holding the wound," said Alchaar.
