He started firing his gun at me and just at the same time I started firing at him—and "Welby started firing. I *ks firiiig directly at the policeman as far as I knew, and 1 judged that Welby was firing at the policeman, although I did not have time to watch him. When ^several shots had been fired and only a few seconds elapsed we both started to run from tliC; store. I left first. As Welby. left the store he was limping. . When wfr got in the car he acted like he had been shot and said ho had been^ shot. I drove the car and |we hurried Jjack to the room in. the Alto hotel. "We cable in the hack way and entered our apartment and I took off Welbyis overcoat and his other coal and oiiened his shirt to sec just how 'he was shot.
