“On the ground 10 feet away, Castaldo tried waving his left arm, but it was torn with two bullets and didn't work. So he lifted his right arm, which had only one bullet.
"I got up to him and saw he was shot in the chest,'' Phelan said. "He was conscious. I was speaking to him. He appeared to be in shock. I grabbed him by the ankles and told him, 'We're getting you out of here.' ''
Dragging the paralyzed student backward on the sidewalk, 40 feet to a waiting fire truck, the two SWAT team members, trailed by a submachine-gun wielding Sgt. Dan O'Shea, passed by the emergency exit that at least 30 survivors earlier had used to flee the library.
"As we crossed the open door, the suspect threw what turned out to be a homemade grenade. It landed about three feet in front of me,'' O'Shea said. "Three shots rang out. I returned fire with my MP-5.''
A shard of bomb shrapnel flew into DiManna's cheek. While O'Shea fired into the doorway, DiManna and Phelan pulled Castaldo to safety.
Then they went back and got Rachel Scott.
"We couldn't leave that little girl there,'' DiManna said.
After carrying out Scott, officers moved down the 22 concrete steps, where they found Danny Rohrbough dead.
Above the slain student, authorities believe they saw Harris and Klebold in a library window.
Bullets whistled and windows shattered. Under the gunfire, Littleton paramedic Jerry Losasso pulled Sean Graves, who was paralyzed, into a waiting ambulance.”

Note: Phelan, O’Shea, and DeManna were all SWAT members.
Granted this was released the day after the massacre, so take it for what it’s worth with all the early inaccuracies, but it could be possible that that is Eric in the picture.
I didn’t realize the shooters got that close to the SWAT members.
That picture was in the old Columbine forum a LONG time ago. At the time I highly doubted it, but after researching things a lot more I think there is a good probability that is Eric.
