“Victim's Sacrifice in S.F. Shooting Recalled
July 05, 1993| Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — Mortally wounded and horrified, John Scully tried one last time to help his wife as she frantically tried to call police from an office phone during a gunman's rampage.
"He tried to give me directions, then he said, 'I'm dying,' and we said our goodbys," a tearful Michelle Scully told the San Francisco Examiner in an interview published Sunday.
Less than a year after their wedding in Honolulu, the young couple watched Thursday as Gian Luigi Ferri began his assault at the Pettit & Martin law firm, where John Scully worked.
Michelle Scully had planned to study at the firm until John's shift ended. She had settled in with some reference books in an empty 33rd-floor office when her 28-year-old husband burst in and yelled: "You've got to get out, they've heard shots!"
