"I saw [Barrow] firing a gun. I went down to the floor. I fell on top of Mr. Combs, and other people fell on top of me. His [Combs']
face looked shocked. His hands were on the floor like the rest of his body."
——Sharise Myers' testimony
WITNESS CLAIMS PUFFY
HAD NO GUN
Nightclub Security Guard Says Only
Shyne Was Armed
A nightclub security guard testified Monday that she never saw Sean "Puffy" Combs with a gun the night shots were fired in a crowded New York club 14 months ago.

But security officer Sharise Myers did say she saw Combs protege Jamal "Shyne" Barrow, another defendant in the case, with a gun during the melee at Club New York on Dec. 27, 1999.

"I saw him firing a gun," she said of Barrow. "I went down to the floor. I fell on top of Mr. Combs, and other people fell on top of me. His (Combs') face looked shocked. His hands were on the floor like the rest of his body.''

Asked by defense lawyer Johnnie Cochran, "Did he [Combs] have a gun in his hands at any time?" Myers replied, "No, he did not."

Barrow, a rapper for Bad Boy Records, is charged with attempted murder. Combs and his bodyguard, Anthony "Wolf'" Jones, are charged with two counts of gun possession. Combs also is charged with bribery for allegedly offering his driver $50,000 to take the gun rap for him.

As she entered the courtroom, Myers' diamond-encrusted watch glinted beautifully in the sun.
