Sergeant Gerry Jonsgaard, a Patrol Supervisor, was about eight blocks away from the theater when the first calls started coming in.
He agreed to talk with us, in part, to try to figure out the identities of some of the people he and his officers helped that night.
He went back to work the next night.
