            Buddy and another Offiicer were on duty in the Intown area of Boston. While
       they were talking, an alarm went off in one of the Jewelry Buildings.  Buddy and

                                 in the lobby. 

                The robbers opend fire on the Officers. In the ensuing gun battle, 
            Buddy's partner was shot and killed, and  Buddy suffered a vicious

     to his feet, pursue one of the robbers for over a block, and effect the apprehension at
