HUNTINGTON - The owner of Oheka Castle is speaking out about the shooting at his estate that nearly killed him.

Gary Melius was shot in the head by a masked gunman two weeks ago in a parking lot at the castle. Police are still searching for the gunman. 

Melius released a video of his first words since the shooting, which seem encouraging and very positive. In the video, Melius is bandaged and wearing an eye patch, and called his survival an act of God.

“I got a break, whatever that reason. I guess, God looked out for me, he has always looked out for me. I am a very spiritual person,” said Melius.

Melius credits his family and the doctors and nurses who treated him with his successful recovery.
