McCoy took him down but Martinez took the credit. Same now as then apparently with the msm. That’s what Chief Acevedo meant when he stated McCoy was humble.
......went back and researched it, 5 studley men got themselves on the 27th floor with Whitman about an hour and fifteen minutes after the shooting started. The Tower Observation Deck is a perfect square about 30’ x 30’ in the form of a narrow walkway that looks down over a chest high parapet onto Austin and the campus below. I have been on it many times. They all had to be really careful as rounds were impacting the building all around them from shooters (good guys) below. There is one door in and one door out onto the parapet and it faces the south side. Whitman was on the northwest corner when 4 of the five went out the south door. McCoy and Martinez went up the east side. Crum (a civilian) and Day headed along the south side west with Crum in the lead. Crum heard Whitman running toward him and fired a round into the wall in front of him (Crum). Whitman then reversed and ran back to the Northeast corner. When he rounded the corner, McCoy fired hitting him in the head. Martinez then grabbed McCoy’s gun and ran over and fired rounds into Whitman as he lay in the corner. There has always been much discussion on the need for this since Whitman had been shot in the head. My opinion is that Martinez deserved all the accolades he got, period. But, God only knows if Whitman was dead when Martinez shot him.
