On a cold, rainy evening, the crew of Rescue 4 is
jolted to attention by a dispatcher announcing,
“Respond to a shooting at 7th Street and Main.” The
lead paramedic recognizes the address as a location
within a community with a long-standing history
of violent crimes. Local police have already secured
the scene. The EMS crew arrives to note a young
male lying in a pool of blood with a visible gunshot
wound (GS W) to his right abdomen.
