A few seconds after the President had passed and was departing from his view, he heard a loud report and first thought that it was a firecracker and a few seconds later heard two more reports and knew it was rifle fire and that someone was apparently shooting at President Kennedy. Martin stated that the shots sounded to him like they came from the Texas School Book Depository building and said he looked toward where he thought the shots came from, namely the Texas School Book Depository building, but did not see anyone that aroused his suspicion.
