Witnesses took the stand against Andrew Dennehy, accused of shooting in the Tulsa County Courthouse plaza, telling what they saw and heard that day.

John Fancher is in charge of communications for Tulsa City and County Library. He worked on the third floor of the library with a window facing the plaza.

He talked about hearing gunshots and looking out the window and seeing people running, then seeing the gunman. He grabbed a digital camera he had on his desk and took about 15 pictures while ducking for his own safety.

Fancher described the gunman's demeanor as, "calm."

Another witness, Dr. Garrett Watt, also took the stand. He talked about the two gunshot wounds that Deputy Fortenberry received at the event. He said they healed well considering the injury.
