On 04/20/99 at approximately 1135 hours I, Ofticer A.J.


DeAndrea received a page advising of a SWAT call oue. I contacted
Jefferson County Sberiff' s Dept. Dispatch and _ . advised tbAt.
there was a sboating at Coluabine High School. Th.. dis{l4tch4r
stated that all SWAT O~fic.rs were to respond to the sh4ri!!'s
Del;lt. for brther info:J;'llUltion. I dressed and responded to the
Sheriff'. Dept.
Upon arrival I lll!lBbted in loading thQ SWAT van, then shortly
thereafter that, the te... deployed to the .cene. WbUe en route,
I recei~d lim1ted information On the situation, but it was
apparent that the te_ was responding to a grave situation. Team
members ~ssisted one another in
dressing and upon arrival I, along
with my otber team mates, was ready to deploy.
. I was ~dvised that the tea. was going to deploy to the school,
us~ng a front-end loader for cover, wbich was about a half block
away. Alonq with the tealll, I went to the front-end loader and the
tea~ deployed from there.

walkin9 behind the front-end loader, we responded to the


>rth_st Sl,d.. of the school. tb.. teaa then left the tront.-"nd
~Qader and responded to the west side of the school where we met up
with our SWAT lieutenant, Terry Manwaring and nUlfterous Denver PO
SWAT Officer••
I, along with the team, was briefed by Lt. Manwaring and
Denver SwlIT sqt.. Dan O'Shay. I was advised that a door leading
into the library "'as blocked by a bomb and theretore the closest
point of entry wall .. window that would have to be breached. The
two teams lined up and a tactical approach was used to 9'9t next to
the school. ,My area of responsibility was the window d~rectly
above our breaclting point. ltowElver, as t moved towards the !lchool,
! could not help but notice out of my peripheral vision a young
female lying on the ground to my right. I glanced at her and it
was apparent that she was dead, as her eyes were half open and
fiXed, her mouth was half open, and she did not move. As we
continued to the breaching point, I noticed another child laying on
the sidewalk to my 'C'igltt. It appeared to be a young boy. Be was
lying lifeless on the ground and somBOne advised that he was
chec~ed for vitals earlier but it was too late. At about this time
I was in position and concentrated on my area of responsibility.
The window was ported and along with the rest of the team, I
made entry. It appeared that we had entered into the faculty
lounqe. Once inside, the sounds of the school alarms were
deafening. It sounded as if tbere were two distinct different
alarms. The floor was covered in about 6 inches ot water and there
'is a di.tinct odor of spent gun powder in the air. .
After clearing the lounge, the team moved into the kitchen
area of the cafeteria. As! scanned the cafeteria, I observed

pipes or from the sprinkler system. The team moved to tbe left and
I co".r"d the first door we came to. It was checked and it was
locked. Verbal challenges _rEI made to the door, however no one
Wfluld open it. I continued to cover the door as it "as breached.
Upon breaching it, I entered into the room and observed tbat some
of the ceiling ti145 had been disturbed and the air duct had been
pulled down. At abou'!: this time intel WlUI receiv..d that the
'l'UJ!lIll!'n, bow lllany __ still unknown, could possibly be bidin9 in the
ce1hng. It ghould be stated t.Ilat no ooe "as found inside thiS
room. The next doo~ was locked and it was next to walk-in freezers
in the kitchen. I held the locked door as tne team ..ntered the
walk-in freezers. 1 was advised thE!Y found two adult mal"". Jls
the males eXited, 1 observed that they appeared to be very cold and
could barely move their arms. 1 heard one state that there "ere
kids in the next roo... This would have been the room r was
holding. Announcements were ~de to the parties inside the room
but there was no response. This door was subsequently breached as
again it was locked and bad been barricaded from the mside. The
uecupants were stricken with fear and would not leave the room,
"ven thOllg'h ordered to do so. There were approxilll4tely l5 to 20
side the ro.,.. An evacuation plan ...as made and my area of
.~spon"tbl1ity changed to the uncleared part of the cafe~eri~. l
held that area and provided cover for the evacuating students and
adults .
Once the students were evacuated, the team finished clearing
the cafet.eria and moved out into the llallw"y. At this point th..
water was "bout to inches deep. Both alarms were still going off
along with the emergency strooe lights. These would continue to be
a nuisance throughout the entire search.
In the hallway numerous rooms were cleared. The auditorium
was to our left and a long hallway to the right. we received intel
that the gunmen could possibly be in the cat walk above the
auditorium. Sgt. Barry Williams, the tactical team leader with
,r"ffer30n County Sheriff's Oept., told Ill" and otber deputies to

Johnson, Deputy Hike 1e1soci, and Deputy Dell ~lineschroidt (sp) of

the auditori~ and across the back of the stage, l~~ving a rear
quard to hold the upper stage storage area. Once ~e arrived on the
other side of the stage, a point man held the auditor.wn and
hallway. There "ere two doors along this side of the back stage
area. I proceeded to breach both rooms and found that they were
both dressing rooms. I found no one inside. 1 noticed that the
ceiling til". had been disturbed and therefore, I proceeded to
'ver Officer Bruce Taoe ". he broke the oeiling tiles to check the
.ea above him. I then moved back to wher.. the rear guard was

area checked clear. At this point we received info~tion over the
radio that there was approximately 60 students biding in a music
roOD> closet.
As we be9an to clear the auditoriUlll, 1II0re Denver SWAT offie.rrs
arrived. They held two lower roQIIl!l otf the auditoriUlll as Deputy
J.D. Johnson and I moved to the eontrol room. lie breached \::his
room and cleared it;. We mOved into a hallway just off the
auditorium and wi~n assistanoe from Denver ?D ofticer., a closet
containinq choir rob.s was breached. I assisted in clearing this
room ..
Even thouqh ffi,r team did not have a mftp. due to the fact that
we had located the choir robes, we bP.lteved we were getting close
to the music room where the 60 kids were hiding.
At this point ..... were facing two double doors and as I opened
e of them, I observed two doors to my riqM:. The furtb.el't said
.•us OJ''. I also observed that just paned this door was a "'1'"
intersection with a large hallway lined with lockers. The team
entered through the doublQ doors and the fint door to our right
was breached and I maintained my area of responsibility which was
the music room. Sgt. Dan O'Shay with the Oenver PD then arrived at
our location. I!;ntry _s made into the music room and it ",as
cleared. A point _an was put on a doorNaI that was directly
opposite where we entered_ This doorway ead back Qut into the
main hallway that the lockers lined. There was also another door
on the opposite side of where we entered. Verbal challenges were
lI1ade for anyone hehind the door to open it, just as they ",er~ made
On every otber door that: had to be breached, bllt 110 one answered.
I, along with other members of the team, observed movement through
a window in the door. It appe4red to be a hand. Again verbal
challenges occurred, but no one would respond. The door was
breached and occupants were observed inside, still refusing to
""it. !lo",eV"lr, once the Hrst student came 011t, <tveryon" else
followed. Th@re were a~proximately 60 inside and tne rOom they
vera in was later identlfied as II closet.
The students /lppe~r..d t.n be very scared, some to the point of
cryinQ and trembling uncontrollably_ They were told to .quat in
the ro~ and once the team was sure that II gunman was not among
th<Yl, they were told how they were going to be evaC\l.a~ed. l\. plan
was devis"d where the students wonld be escorted out. an groups of

door approximately 6 feet down that hall. The pointman advised
that through the window in the dOOr he had observed movement in the
classroom.
The t"am moved to tllat loclltion and found that there was a
door directly across the hall fra. the door that we had targeted.
Behind Deputy J.D. Johnson, I moved deeper into this hallway and
b.ld it so the team could make entry into tne two rooms. ,was
advised that r~.. r .. were students in both rooms, totaling about 60.
I remained on my area of responsibility as the two rooms were
<!vae:ullted. Once the students bad been e'racuated, we moved down the

INVESTIGATION:

On 4.20-99, between 1125 and 1130 hours, I was in the Investigations Division of the Sheriff's Office when I was told that
there was a man with a gun at Columbine High School, 6201 South Pierce Street. At this time I ran to the SWAT armory to
retrievemy ARI5 and contacted InvestigatorDennis Beery, SWAT Team member, in the locker room. At 1141 hours.while
in the locker room, putting on our SWAT uniform, we receiveda page concerning the Incident.

I arrived on scene at the high school with the SWAT Team at approximately 1233 hours and was deployed WIth the team at
about 1306 hours. The leSO SWAT Team was divided into two groups, at which time we were placed with three to four
Denver SWAT Team members and in this combinationhad two full SWAT Teams. We then entered into a window on the
lower southwestcorner just north ofthe cafeteria Once we made entry we went through the Teachers Lounge and clearedthe
cafeteria area. At this time 10 to 20 students were locatedin the kitchen area and we were informed possible suspects might
ce in the ceiling above us. We then noticed some ceiling tiles that were moved in the Teachers Lounge.

The students were evacuated from the building and we continued our search into the hallway. just east of the cafeteria. At this

time the two teams split and the team I was on went north down the hallway while the other team went south down the same
hallway, From here I participated in cleating the auditorium from the west side, working our way up to the east side. which
put us on the main level of the building.

We entered the hallway on the south side of the auditorium and began cleating rooms on the main floor. The team [
participated on located approximately 60 students hiding insidethe chorus room and these students were evacuated out of the
building. Once this was done we continued our search into the main south hallway and across the hall toward the science
rooms, where we located approximately30 to 40 students,as well as teachers, in two science rooms just south of the hallway
Once these groups of students and teachers were evacuated we continued our search. In a horseshoe hallway, I noticed that
there were large 4x8 tables standing on end facing the entry door to the room. As we worked our way around into the main
hallway, now traveling west, there was a storage room adjacent to one of the teaching rooms, where I noticed an adult male
ving on his back. I then went into this room and checkedfor a pulse and could not find one. Later. this person was identified

me know who's coming but we got, we got to get in there now. I didn't want to wait, I
didn't know how many more people were going to be killed ifwe waited. I need to
engage now. So, we're quite a ways from the pumper, or quite a ways from the school at
this point, so we're like trying to double time as much as possible, our gear and stuff like
that, the guy takes us to the east side of the school, uh we __.m...... two cells, we had
gotten reports that was shooting going in the cafeteria with hostages, one cell, 4 or 5 man
cell, went to that cafeteria area to try and hold and engage or recon if nothing else. Vince
DeManna, and Pat, me, a couple other SWAT guys ......- .......-- stayed with the fire
truck, ..... took us around the side of the school, there was other uniforms so holding
perimeter positions and trying to watch doorways. Uh, 1 could, I could probablydraw it
better than tell you but On the back side of the schooland [ want to say cause ....__
m _

it's been a long time since I've been down here cause I think that's the northwestcomer
of the school (inaudiblebecause of overhead P.A. system). That might help me describe
it to, better to, [ got cracked ribs too so.

SH: Do you really.

TM: Yeah.

SH: Did you see a doctor.

TM: Well these cracked ribs are from something else and this is from today and so it's like
you know you're all fucked up.

SH: Okay,

TM: I want to do this·--- Uh, the cafeteriais like I think on the east side of the school and I'm
not very good at drawing...

SH: That's okay...

TM: So you'll have to bear with me -··-·--···---we dropped off one cell in the parkinglot and
you're trying to cover these windows and there were some windows here. I remember
kids, there were some kids at the windows with their hands, palms out of the window,

SH: Okay,

TM: Like this, it was like they were either hostages or they're trying to get out, something,
We dropped this cell off at the cafeteria area, wherethe cafeteria was at, cause we knew
or we had information there was a shooter in the cafeteriaarea shooting people, holding
hostages, whatever. The fire truck backs out, takes us around to the northwestcorner of
the school, we just walk alongside the truck, trying to COVer the windows as best we can.
There's two like, two big generators, ••••-....-- things here and this is all grassy knoll and
then the libraryis kind of a semi circle thing like this, doorway here, wall, and then like
these big double doors right here, chain link fence and dumpsters trash dumpstersover
here.

SH: Okay What do you think that room is there where it curves,

TM: This we didn't know,

SH: Okay,

TM: We assumed it was the library,

SH: Okay,

TM: We didn't know, we had no idea ------- cause there's lots of windows, all these are
windows, all the way around,and then it goes down to another level, We bring the fire
truck right here and we're trying to use that for a blockade.

SH: -.--•••-.--- a fire bomb...

TM: We could see two or three here I think outside the school, ..studentsdown.

SM: Oh students down.

TM: And I think there's at least one down here, down these steps. The library come to find
out is pretty much ------ level with where we were at with the fire truck,

SM: Okay.

TM: We had real problems with this fire truck cause it's slicker than snot out there and we got
it stuck like twice and poor guy's trying to move this thing. --------- was in the line of
fire a lot, just trying to move that truck around. We knew we had to get to these here, we
had a copper, just a regular uniformed copper at this position here, trying to cover this
doorway and this door standing wide open and this kind, you can see it, kind of goes into
like an office or something so he's trying to cover with his pistol, he's just got a pistol.
We did a quick scout from here, we stopped the fire truck here, did a quick scout to see
what we could see, we see people down. I could even see at one point a hand like, trying
to, a body laying there trying to reach up for help.

SH: Okay.

TM: We did the scout and a real quick game plan, uh, -------------- there. Put this uniformed
copper with his pistol back on position come around the pumper and come in ------- like
this. We could see that we had two or three here, one was a boy, one was a girl, then
there was just---------, and then there's one down here and so we had to go in and see--
----0000-------- and save them. And I can't remember ------------- or what _._.n _
we had two...

SH: ----- shields

TM: We had one shield cause we sent the other shield with these guys so we only had two
shields, two ballistic shields. So like five or six, however there many was, I think the
plan was for Vince and Pat just going, do a quick analysis, see who you think is alive,
grab 'em, pull 'ern to safety over here in front of the truck, This was the front of the truck
cause I remember we laid a boy on the bumper who had been shot and he bad a bullet
holes right through here. I'm not sure now. As we got out I covered from this side here,
on this side of the pumper and moved up to about the chain link portion in here. Pretty
soon the coppers that came from around this side started firing over here.

SH: Okay.

TM; ·--------1 thought we're taking fire. This is------you know cause we had got information
that shooters were in here. I laid two rounds through what thought, what I thought I saw

was a person moving, it could have been a reflection, it could have been us with the son
reflecting on those glass.

SH: So you shot at the door.

TM: Yeah, so I shot at the door.

SH: Two rounds.

TM: Two rounds.

SH: Was the door closed.

TM: Closed.

SHe Okay.

TM: Urn, glass, glass, everything was shot up here already previously, it's so full
of bullet holes before we even got there it isn't funny.

SH: Okay.

TM: So obviously there had been shooting through there.

SH: Okay. Who else .••--.--...., are these your guys or are these other, people of other
SWAT teams.

TM: Other SW AT teams.

SH: Okay.

TM: I'm the only Jeffco guy shooting.

SH: You are, okay.

TM: The other ones are Denver, Littleton .

SH: Okay.

TM: So, and that's, that's what I thought I saw when I come up and I was trying to cover and 1
could see there was shooting, I thought, I thought I saw a bad guy. you know, there.

still had to get that girl out of there. ------- around she's dead, obviously dead, Jeffco

a long time and she's not only dead and bleeding all over the place and there's not a damn
thing we can do for her, We had to patrol the fire zone here and here at this doorway and
all this glass here which turns out to be the library, turns out the shooters are right here,

SHe --m-----okay, okay.

check this pocket here.

INVESTIGATION
On the morningof 4-20-99. J was advised by Sgt. Randy Westthat shots had been tired at Columbine High School and I Was
advisedto respond to that location. InvestigatorDoug Moore and I deponed JCSO and l took my SWAT equipmentbag with
me. Investigator Mooreand J arrived at Clement Parkand parked the Investigation's vehicle in the parkinglot adjacent to South
PierceStreetwhere there were several other JCSO personnel and other police agenciesstaging. I immediately dressed into my
SWAT uniform and then met with SWAT commander. Lt, Terry Manwaring. wbom I located on South Pierce Street. I was
advised by L1. Manwaring to obtain gear and be prepared 10 immediately respond to the high school.

Deputy DelKleinschmidt was also at this locationand he provided me with a SWATtacticlevest which I put on. At thedirection
of Lt. Manwaring [approached a LittletonPolice Officerwhowas alsodressing in SWATgear. I asked him if he had a ballistic
shieldwith him and he responded in the affirmative. I explained to himthat my SWAT commanderwas requesting that he gear
up. bring his shield and stage at Lt, Manwaring's patrol vehicle. Several minute. later Lt. Manwaring and I. along with at least
.,.,0 Littleton Police SWAT officers, and several DenverSWAT officers, staged at Lt. Manwaring's patrol vehiclebehinda fire
pumper thatwas also at that location. Deputy Del Kleinschmidt thenagreed to drivethe pumperand I asked an unidentified CSP
Sgt. ifhe could locale a soft ballistic vest that we could put on the passenger side window ofthe vehicle. He did locatea vest
and the Vest was placed over the passenger windowof the firepumper, and the window was rolled up to provide at least some
protection from any gunfire that may have been encountered from the right side of the fire pumper.

Lt. Manwaring and I, the Denver officers, and the Littleton officers, then got on the left side of the fire pumper. Deputy
Kleinschmidt began driving southbound on South PierceStreetand pulled into the parking lot which is on the east SIde of the
school, He then drove up the sidewalk adjacent to this parking lot, and brought the fire pumper to a stop, adjacent to a portion
of the school buildingwhich was slightly to the south of the east main entrance of the school. At this point I accompanied at
least one Littleton SWAT officer and four to five DenverSWAT officers into the building, through an unlocked door whichwas
locatedon the east facing side of the building, and locatedjust south of the sidewalk that we were standing on.

Uponentty to the building the fire alarms were soundingand it wasextremelydifficultto hear anything other than the very loud
fire alarms, We then began systematically cleating classroomswhich were unlocked in the south/eastsectionofthe school. We

did locate one teacher in a classroom, just inside the entrance that we entered into. This teacher was instrueledto maintain cover
in the classroom and the doorwas secured, securinghim into this classroom, We then continuedclearing classroomsuntilsuch
timewe had a section of this hallway cleared, At this point we heldareas that we had cleared and when it was safe to do so we
evacuatedthe teacher out of the classroom.

By this time this team had been augmented by several other DenverSWAT officers as well as other members of the Littleton
SWATteam, We then continuedclearingclassroomsin the south/east comer of the school. We then moved through a hallway
whichaccessedan open area, adjacent to the administration offices on the east side ofthe building, and we began systematically
clearingthe administration offices, There were two adult female staff memberslocated in the offices within the administration
area, and these two individualswere evacuated back throughthe areas which we had cleared and were holding,

After clearingthe administration officeswe then movedin a northerly directionclearingrooms which l larer learnedwere to the
_.st of the weight room and gym area. This was a substantially large area and we cleared all areas to the north of the
administration offices, which included a band room, ceramic room. wood shop area, and several other class rooms and rooms
in that sectionwhich would have been the north/eastsectionof the school. Upon clearing these areas this (earnthen movedto
the mainhallwayand we proceeded west down the mainhallway from the administration offices and began clearingareas to both
the north and south of the main hallway to include science rooms to the south and the main gym to the north.

We continued in a westerly direction towards the west side of the school and subsequently met up with another SWAT team
which included membersof the leSQ SWAT team as well as Denverofficers, At this point we discussed between each team
which areas had been cleared and determined that all areas ofthe school had been cleared at this point.

II should be noted: During the clearing procedure which was occurring I maintained radio contact with JeSO SWAT team
leader, Barry Williams, providinginformation to him indicating whereour team was located and which areas we weresearching,
As thiscommunication was occurringI provided information to DenverSWAT officers and Littleton SWAT officerswho were
with me so that all SWAT personnel in the building would be awareof each team's location and activities,

On 04/20/99 at approximately 1203 hrs I responded to the vicinity of


Columbine High School at 6201 S. Pierce St., in reference assisting
Jefferson County Sheriffs Department with a report of shots fired at that
location.
I subsequently arrived at the command post at approximately 1221 brs,
which was located near the intersection of w. Leawood and S. Pierce St.,
and was initially directed to assist other LPD agents who were manning the
perimeter in the park to the north of the high school.
I was subsequently directed by Sgt. J. Streeter to change out into my
SWAT gear and prepare for deployment at the school.
I responded back to the SWAT van after changing and was subsequently
deployed with other members of the team to the s/west corner of Columbine
High School.
At that location I was directed by Sgt J. Romaniec to go and relieve one
of the Denver SWAT team members who was on an interior perimeter position
on the northwest corner of the school.
I responded to that location and did relieve the Denver office,
maintaining that position u.~til I was relieved by agents from the Federal
Sureau of Inmvestigations.
Finally, while I was on that interior perimeter position I had my
assigned SWAT AR-15 and my Glock 21 sidearm.

Observation/Investigation:
on 04/20/99 at approximately 1215 I became aware of the events occurring at
Columbine High School. I was advised by LPn Dispatch that our SWAT Team
was responding. While enroute to the call I learned that Sergeant Hinkle
had established our rally point south of 1'1. Bowles Ave on Pie:J:."ce St. Due
to congestion of traffic and pedestrians in the area I did not arrive at
our SWAT Command Post until 1246 hours. During that time Sergeant Hinkle
kept dispatch appraised of the situation. Upon arriving on scene,
Sergeant Hinkle advised me of the situation as he knew it and also provided
me with a briefing as to our team's deployment. I requested Sergeant
Hinkle to go to the Jeffco Command Post to advise them of our availability
and to set up a communications link with the other SWAT Teams who were
involved in this action.
Agent Kraemer contacted me via radio advising that three members of our
SWAT Team were at the Rooney Valley Range and were available for
deployment. They were told to respond. During this time part of our team
was deployed with Littleton PO's SWAT Team to assist with evacuation of
students and a search for suspects. sniper teams were deployed to the
north west side of the school (sector 2, corner 3). During this deployment
Sergeant Streeter's team was able to join with two DI?O officers. A request
was made to check the roof and was initially denied because we had no
communication with either DI?O or Jeffco at that time to advise their teams
inside the school and local media helicopters had not observed any activity
on the roof. Permission was granted for Sgt. Streeter's team to cover
these two DPD officers should have decided to gain access to the school
roof.
Once Lt. Burch arrived, we responded to the Jeffco Command Post. Once
there, we contacted sergeant Bill Black, Littleton Police Department. Sgt.
Black advised that a Tactical Command Post had been established at Pierce
St. and W. Fair Ave, directly east of the main school entrance. Lt. Burch
stayed at the Jeffeo Command Post and I responded to the Tactical Command
Post. I contacted Sergeant Dave Parker of Littleton PD. He provided me
with information on his team's deployment. In addition, Lt. Neller of the
Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office arrived and we began to coordinate
tactical information. Drawing boards were brought up and small maps of the
school were Obtained.
During this time. I was contacted by a Jeffco supervisor who requested our

,;eam locate the two sUllpeot vehicles and disable them. sergeant Hinkle
was assigned this task and assembled a response team. (See his report for
details). Sergeant Hinkle was able to use a Loomis armored vehicle which
was made available. Sergeant Hinkle' s team was eventually able to locate
these vehicles and disable them. In addition, potential explosive devices
were located inside one of these vehicles. This information was provided
to Jeffco SO and the BomI;) Squad. While on this mission, Sergeant Hinkle's
team beoame involved in a rescue mission. (See team member reports for
additional. details). During this time Agent Bob Clark arrived on scene.
He was directed to take a high ground position on a roof to the east.
While at the Tactical Command Post, Lt. Terry Manwaring of the Jefferson
County Sheriff's Office and Captain Vince Dimannia from the Denver Police
~artment joined the Taotical Command Post. A short time later, we were
jO:l.ned by Lt. Pat Pleghan from DPD. All of the Tactical Commanders
reviewed the available information and jointly deployed teams to search
the remaining area's of the school which were not secured yet. These
areas inclUded the southwest lower level of the school which was assigned
to LPD, and the northeast main level assigned to DPD. Littleton and
Lakewood teams assisted with a search of the Science and Lab rooms, and
assisted with the rescue of numerous students who were escorted out of the
main building.
The on-scene SWAT commanders then divided the school into zones for micro
search of the building. LPD SWAT was assi!iJlled to the lower level of the
school. (See Sgt. Streeter and Sgt. Roman~ec's report for additional) .
loom's which were locked and could not be cleared were forcibly entered.
All SWAT Team's were told to mark those area's they searched and to
include the team juriSdiction and time the room was cleared.
In addition, members from Ll'l) SWAT assisted with taking medical personnel
inside the school and library to confirm the medical status of the victims
found inside the school.
The maps used by the Tactical COlllmaIICl Post were given to Captain Boyd of
the Jefferson county Sheriff's Office. At the request of Lt. Manwaring,
Jeffeo SO, I stayed at the COlllmaIICl Post with the other Tactical commanders
to provide a briefing as relief SWAT and Bomb Teams were brought to the
scene. The i'SI and CSP SWAT team' S were brought in to provide perimeter
security.
Please refer to the CAD Detail Report for times.
