After picking up the pistol, he told another officer to lock both guns in his car.
Senn is a trained EMT. He determined that Mike was dead after securing the weapons.
He then tried to calm Tim down. Tim told him, "Rick, that mother----er, killed my brother and shot me."
Pros hands Senn a photo. Senn identifies it as a photo of a bullet hole in a wall.
He hands him a couple more photos.
He explains that they are blood smudges that appeared to have resulted from someone grabbing the wall as they were falling.
The bullet hole is actually in the front door, not a wall.

These photos are of casings, shrapnel and bullets recovered at the scene of the shooting.
Pros will now show these photos to the jury.
Pros is asking about Senn's observations about the casings, etc.
Senn says he immediately noticed the smell of gun powder when he entered the apt.

Second photo is of another .22 casing. Senn marks this one, too.
Third photo is same. Senn marks this one, too.
Fourth and fifth photos are the same. Senn marks these.
He then marks the position of a couch, a chair and a coffee table on the diagram.

Sixth photo is of what Senn identifies as a fragment from a .22 round. Marks on diagram.
Seventh photo is of a .223 casing. Marked on diagram.
Last photo is a wide shot of Mike's body with a view of the body in relation to several of the casings. It also shows another casing. It is marked on the diagram.
Senn says that when he finished collecting evidence, he placed Mike's body into a body bag.
When they moved the body, they found a bag of black zip ties beneath it.
They didn't siege the zip ties at the time, but he later learned from an interview with Tim that Whitman had brought them into the apt at time of shooting.
Pros produces the bag of zip ties and a single zip tie that is out of the bag. They have blood on them.
Def objects to entering zip ties into evidence because they were seized three days after the incident.
Def questions Senn on how he knew that no one had entered the apt and tampered with the ties. Senn says the apt was sealed with fragile tape that would have obviously been broken if it were entered.
Judge overrules and accepts zip ties into evidence.
Senn accompanied body to Sakakawea Medical Center. Senn took photos of the body and close up photos of the wounds.
Pros produces several photos and asks Senn to identify them.
They are photos of Mike's wounds, including one of his hand. Senn says wond on hand is consistent with getting it stuck in the action of a firearm.
