"I can't tell you if I was scared or fearful or trying to help," Wagner said. "I don't know."
Wagner said he ran through the whole facility to get all the other employees into one room and had them all gather in the back maintenance shop, telling them to shut the door until he got back.
"I didn't process the fact I was putting myself in harm's way when I did that," Wagner said. "I just wanted my people safe."
He said he called 911.
When he returned to the office, the injured man was lying on the floor in the bathroom while someone else was applying pressure to his wounds, Wagner said.
One employee ran out to flag police and other first responders as they arrived, Wagner said.
"You don't think it's going to happen here," Wagner said. "Then it did, and it happened."
"Did we do the right thing? Did we do alright? I think so. I don't know."
