Mr. BALL. Could you tell where the shots where coming from?
Mr. PIPER. No, sir-I couldn't, not for sure.
Mr. BALL. The direction?
Mr. PIPER. No, sir; I couldn't. [6H385]

Mr. BALL. Now, on that day [November 23, 1963], did you tell them [Dallas Police] that the shots that you heard seemed to come from inside the building?
Mr. PIPER Yes sir.
Mr. BALL. You did tell them that?
Mr. PIPER. Yes sir.
Mr. BALL. Was that your best impression then?
Mr. PIPER. Yes; they seemed like they did come from the building, you know, by the vibration of that window-it seemed like nobody had shot in the window from the outside-it might have been coming from the building-is what I figured. [6H386]
