Helen Wilson, who was also a victim of the attack at the concert hall and sustained shots to both legs, witnessed Nick being shot and spoke about the incident from a hospital bed. According to the report, Wilson was Nick's ex-girlfriend.

"Nick was shot in front of me. We heard a couple of noises outside and people started running into the club. We didn't know what was going on."
"When anyone started running they would shoot them down. So we got down on the floor. I was afraid whenever I heard a step behind me... they machine-gunned everybody."

Aside from serving as the merchandise manager for Eagles of Death Metal, Nick Alexander also had a similar roles for touring bands such as The Black Keys, Panic! at the Disco, and Sum 41.
