An Explosion of Violence

"All units in vicinity, West Engelburg, respond to 10-13. EMS en route." John knew they were
talking about him. This time, he would be ready. He climbed to the top of a nearby bell tower.
He laid down, facing the street with the sniper rifle he had placed up there. He loaded the gun
seconds before two additional police cruisers arrived. Over the radio, he could hear one of the
officers speak. "10-90-Z, there's no one here." John took careful aim, and fired. The officer's
head exploded as the bullet collided with it. John could hear the other officer over the radio.
"Holy Shit! Officer Down, Officer Down! 10-13! We need a 10-54! Repeat: 10-54 needed!" The
officer started firing in John's direction as he reloaded his rifle. 'You prick.', John thought
'Can't you just accept your fate?' John took careful aim once more, and fired. The second
officer's chest gave way to the bullet, which left a gaping hole. The officer fell to the ground,
still clutching his weapon. He heard a helicopter overhead, and a voice said,"This is the Liberty
City Police Department! Drop your weapon and come out with your hands up!"
