The images are self explanatory IMO.I see what appears to be a figure in Altgens with possibly a rifle leaning over the 3rd floor window of the Dal-Tex building just seconds after the first shot was fired.

I cropped the area you mentioned and blew it up some. I don't know if this will show up here or not, but I was surprised to see two beedy little eyes looking back at me.

Steve - You are not looking at the same windows that Duncan is talking about from what I can tell. Note where the bottom of the fire escape comes in relation to the sill.

Thanks. I think you are right. I don't remember where I copied this from, but it was a blowup of this set of pictures:

(I had to delete the photo I used before 'cause I was "out of space" :-) )

I believe we see here a man sitting on the fire escape, black pants, knees up,
facing right, looking over the diagonal railing toward Altgens.
Below him is a gun nest, possibly.
Lee Forman has found lens flashes and radios in this area, I believe,
and it is very strongly argued that a team of one radio man
and one sniper was here, or possibly one floor below...but here we see the
fire escape man and the suspicious window "barrel"

Hi Shanet - One floor below the man on the fire escape is at ground level.

Thanks. I ran across this copy on a page by Dave Conklin.

The spotter controlling the fire escape is much clearer in that posted link.

Yes, that close to the ground, a team would need someone out on the lookout.

thanks
