I started to wind my film again and I heard a loud noise. I thoght that this noise was either a firecracker or a car has backfired.I looked up and it seemed like there was another loud noisein the matter of a few seconds. I looked down the street and I could see the President's car and another one and they looked like the cars were stopped. Then I saw a flash of pink like someone standing up and then sitting back down in the car. Then I ran aroundso I could look over the back of a monument and I either saw the following then or when I was standing back down on the corner of Elm Street. I cannot remember exactly where I was When I saw the following I heard at least two shots fired and I saw what looked like a firecracker going off in the President's car. My assumption for this was because I saw fragments going up in the air. I also saw a man in either the President's car or the car behind his and someone down in one of those carspulled what looked like a rifle. I also remember seeing what looked like a nickel revolver in someone's hand in the president's car or somrwhere immediately around his car. Then the Presidet's car sped on the underpass. Police and a lot of spectators started running up the hill on the opposite side of the street from me to a fence of wood. I assumed that that was where the shot was fired from at the time.
