“I think, in the moment, I'm like, what can I do to help you?” she said. “Whatever I can do to help you get out of here."
And so, when he stopped yelling, Lisa says he asked for a glass of water. That’s when she saw an opportunity to talk.
"I said, ‘I'm afraid for my children upstairs.’ He said, 'It's okay. I'm a dad myself. And he said, 'I just really need to think a minute. I think I'm going to die today,'” Lisa said. "It was crushing, because I could see the agony on his face and just the... the conflict. He really did not know what he was going to do. He again pointed the gun at me, but… then pointed it at himself.”
At that point, Lisa could hear her husband, Craig Patterson, open his door and begin making his way downstairs.
"I handed him the glass of water and I said, 'I can hear my husband coming, please don't do anything. Let me tell him what’s going on,’” Lisa said.

Craig says he heard the commotion from the top of the stairs, so identified himself and slowly made his way down.
"The gunman said, 'I want to see your hands,'" Craig said. "So I stuck my hands out around the rail, to show him my hands and I slowly put my head out and moved my body into his view. He had the gun pointed at me with both hands, and he said to me, 'Do you have a safe room in your house, or a study?'”
Instead, the couple offered their garage, and when the man made his way to it, they acted quickly.
"We kind of gave each other that look that a married couple gives each other when they have been together a long time, and you know what each other is going to say before they say it, and we just took the best chance that we had to get out and we did,” Craig said. “I went upstairs, and I told the kids we have a gunman in the house, we have to get out. We ran down the stairs and out the front door and ran to safety."
The couple escaped with their daughters just in time, and Craig says he has his wife to thank.
“I think she really did an amazing job and if it wasn't for her I might not be alive,” he said. "She was very calm."
