This is a guest post by Bob Mady. And the graphic is his work too. 

As BAKER is running into the TSBD, SHELLEY and LOVELADY (in the light colored shirt) walk towards the rail yards to see the activity of hunting down the shooters.
In this image from the Couch film, you can see SHELLEY and LOVELADY, but there is also an Officer running ahead of them, and it looks like he is about to draw his gun as he is running toward the rail yards.  Wonder who this was?

Mr. LOVELADY - Well, I asked who told her. She said he had been shot so we asked her was she for certain or just had she seen the shot hit him or--she said yes, she had been right close to it to see and she had saw the blood and knew he had been hit but didn't know how serious it was and so the crowd had started towards the railroad tracks back, you know, behind our building there and we run towards that little, old island and kind of down there in that little street. We went as far as the first tracks and everybody was hollering and crying and policemen started running out that way and we said we better get back into the building, so we went back into the west entrance on the back dock had that low ramp and went into the back dock back inside the building. 
Mr. BALL - First of all, let's get you to tell us whom you left the steps with. 
Mr. LOVELADY - Mr. Shelley. 
Mr. BALL - Shelley and you went down how far? 
Mr. LOVELADY - Well, I would say a good 75, between 75 to 100 yards to the first tracks. See how those tracks goes--- 
Mr. BALL - You went down the dead end on Elm? 
Mr. LOVELADY - Yes. 
Mr. BALL - And down to the first tracks? 
Mr. LOVELADY - Yes.
