We carried him to the supply room and laid him on the counter. He was bleeding across the chest and moaned from the pain. At this time, there were about five people in the supply room and one called the hospital for an ambulance. In a short time it came to the front of the building and we were told to bring the Lieutenant out. We slid him off the counter and he fell toward me. Another fellow and I carried the injured Lieutenant to the ambulance and laid him on a stretcher. The driver and another fellow slid him in and they turned toward me. The driver, thinking I was wounded also because of all the blood on my shirt, said Take it easy now and get into the ambulance I said there is nothing wrong with me. He replied,  I know, I know and began to force me inside where the Lieutenant was lying. I went into the vehicle, crawled over the drivers seat and went out through the door. As I walked away from the ambulance, the driver, thinking I was in shock, began chasing me yelling for me to come back. He soon gave up, returning to the ambulance and drove the injured man to the hospital. We later learned that he died from the injuries he received in the chest.
