A blow-by-blow account of Howard Unruh’s slow, deadly walk through Camden, New Jersey – written in two and a half hours:

James J. Hutton, 45, an insurance agent from Westmont, N.J., started out of the drug shop to see what the shooting was about.

Later, Unruh told the police: “That man didn’t act fast enough. He didn’t get out of my way.”
