Below is a link to the fire radio traffic from the Tucson shooting on Sunday.
TAKE NOTE of the demeanor of those involved, including those shot-as well as the IC and the outstanding fire radio dispatcher. Another excellent example showing the results of training, training that never ends.

COMMENTS FROM TUCSON FIRE CHIEF CHUCK RYAN:
The series of incidents began when TFD firefighters turned out to a call that a house was on fire Sunday afternoon. The members reported that a vehicle was following them into the neighborhood and then reported that shots had been fired. Less than two minutes later, firefighters radioed that a fire captain had been shot. The gunman shot at Firefighters as well as at neighbors who came out to help, ultimately injuring two people.
After setting the house on fire, the suspect left the scene and headed to a nearby park, where he ambushed two AMR ambulance EMT’s-who were there for an unrelated detail.
The 20-year-old male EMT who was shot in the head remained hospitalized in life-threatening condition at Barnard University Medical Center Monday. His 22-year-old female EMT partner, who was shot in the chest and an arm, remained hospitalized in serious but stable condition.
The suspect returned to the scene of the house fire, where he then opened fire on Firefighters, neighbors and anyone who was trying to help…and fatally shot one neighbor, 44-year-old Cory Saunders, in the head. Saunders is survived by his 11-year-old son, who witnessed the attack that killed his father.
A Captain with the Tucson Fire Department, who was shot in an arm, was treated and released and was recovering at home as of Monday. A second neighbor who was grazed in the head by a round fired by the suspect, and is doing well.
The suspect then left the scene of the house fire a second time, before ramming a police car that was responding to the incident, where the cop shot him, critically injuring him.
