CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Holly Anderson didn't have any premonition of trouble on April 26 when her estranged husband asked her to meet him outside the store where she worked in Collegedale.

She walked out to meet Jeffery Held, standing by his red pickup across the parking lot from the store.

Then he pulled a shotgun out of his truck. He leveled it at her, standing just a few feet away.

Then he cocked the shotgun and pulled the trigger.

Anderson has flashbacks and nightmares about the shooting. She has good days and bad days.

In her dreams, she sees all the other ways the day could have ended, replayed over and over again.

When she wakes up, she's thankful that it wasn't worse.
