Shaw calls for an ambulance and applies pressure to the gunshot wound. “I love you. I’m sorry brother,” he said.
Grimm asks multiple times for his wife to be called and for his camera bag to be brought with him to the hospital. “I thought you saw me wave,” Grimm said.
Grimm can also be heard saying he doesn’t want Shaw to lose his job.
