And you were talking about Tom Fox that that reporter but photographer with the Dallas morning news. The pictures he was able to capture. From that spot right next to the gunman were were were chilling. And that video we saw from a tenth floor apartment which is right across the street from the courthouse. Captured just how close he was to the gunman and caught in the crossfire. And he said that he is is so thankful that that gunman didn't see him because he believes if the twenty year old man now identified as Brian five had seen him. He believes he would have been shot and and and killed but in that video instead we see authorities say five shooting at the into the building you see just behind me here. At one when he runs across the strait. Into a parking lot and at that point is when I'll federal authorities were able to shoot. And killed him and as you mentioned Kimberley nobody else was hurt but now we have this investigation under way to try to figure out a motive and right now investigators don't know. Why Clyde may have targeted this building. They have been tracing his weapon and also trying to talk to people who knew him to get a sense of of why he may have done this. And I can tell you that the the WFAAR affiliate here in Dallas has spoken with people. Including neighbors. Who'll let live in the apartment complex where he apparently I was staying.
