Later Sheen realised his friend had been involved in trying to hold down one of the offenders.

“He’s the type of person that helps, he’s the type of person that will protect someone innocent when something like this is happening.

Sheen said his friend tried to hold onto the man but was shot at by one of the other offenders who was in a car.

“The person jumped in the car, the car sped away really quick and, unfortunately as I understand, ran over Patricia.”

Sheen, who has lived in Newport Beach since he was a child, said McKay’s death was shocking and nothing like that had happened there before.
