In her first interview since the shootings, Sgt. Munley says she remembers every detail of the incident. "I never lost consciousness, and I refused to," she says. "I wanted to stay awake and know everything that was going on and control my breathing to make sure I was not going to fall into shock."

Sgt. Munley says she was washing her patrol car at the end of her shift when the call about the shootings came in. Armed with a pistol, she says she entered a chaotic situation. "I was still unaware completely as to what was going on and what we were up against, who we were up against," she says. "There were many people outside pointing into the direction that this individual was apparently located, and as soon as I got out of my vehicle and ran up the hill is when things started getting pretty bad and we started encountering the fire."
