Dallas Police Sergeant Gerald L. Hill was investigating the shooting of President Kennedy when he received a Code Three to respond to the shooting of a fellow officer. This call began an chain of events that led to the capture of JFK's assassin Lee Harvey Oswald as well as the beginning of countless conspiracy theories. This souvenir two-page type written document relates the events of Oswald's capture as told by the four men who played starring roles in the episode: Sergeant Hill, Investigator Ray Hawkins, Detective Paul Bentley and Patrolman M.N. McDonald. The statement submitted to Police Chief J.E. Curry on November 22, 1963 and reads in part "we received information via the police radio that an officer had been shot…There was a pool of blood about two feet north of the squad car in the street…Minutes later we received additional information that the subject was in the Texas Theater (sic)…Officer McDonald approached the center section on the third row from the back…As he approached the subject, the suspect said, ‘This is it,’ and sprang from his seat….after a struggle in which the suspect resisted violently he was disarmed and handcuffed…The suspect, later identified as Lee H. Oswald, w/m/24, was released by arresting officers to Captain J.W. Fritz of the Homicide Bureau.” The document is signed by the four Dallas policemen in blue ballpoint pen and is accompanied by a page with photographs of the four men signing the statement.
