One of the survivors of Saturday's shooting spree in Arizona says "it was like a bad crime drama."

Eric Fuller said Tuesday on the CBS "The Early Show" that he felt the bullet that hit his knee but didn't know he had also been hit in the back.

He says he didn't know how to react and felt the victims "were in for more."
