Timeline: new details emerge from moments surrounding Amtrak shooting
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Video from Virtual Railfan shows people boarding the Amtrak train in downtown Tucson at 7:45 a.m, moments before a man opened fire on the train, killing a DEA agent and injuring two other officers.
Three men are seen stepping off the train. It appears two of the men are law enforcement officers in plain clothes. The third man appears to be a passenger, who is wearing a black hoodie, khaki shorts and white shoes.
It looks like the undercover officers tell the passenger to set his belongings on the ground as a police K-9 and his handler approaches. The K-9 is seen sniffing the bags.
The passenger is allowed to get back on the train with his bags. He is followed by the other two men, who again, appear to be undercover officers.
A different man comes out with other bags and begins to search them. The K-9 approaches the bags and the man goes back into the train, leaving the bags by the K-9 and his handler.
The first round of shots is heard. The TPD Officer and K-9 run onto the train. Seconds later, the TPD officer and K-9 can be seen running away from the suspect, who is hanging out of the train car and firing at them.
The suspect appears to be wearing a black hoodie, khaki shorts and white shoes, although authorities have not confirmed that this is the same person whose bag was being searched earlier.
8:10 a.m. to 8:15 p.m.
More officers arrive and more than 15 gunshots can be heard.
Someone can be heard yelling for a tourniquet before passengers are evacuated from the train. More officers, including SWAT, arrive on the scene.
