"One of her partners was at the back door; she and the other officer were trying a key they’d obtained from the complex superintendent on the front door. When it wouldn’t budge, White stepped back from the door, intending to take the key round to the back of the house and try the lock there.
She didn’t get any further. There was a shot (“It sounded like a balloon popping…right beside my head”) and smoke clouded out from a gaping hole in the white door of the townhouse.
Her nostrils were filled with the smell of gunpowder, and she felt a “burning, searing, red-hot” sensation in her right shin.
