People screamed and ran into the busy street, stopping traffic. Trent laid the gun down next to the dead man and pulled out his wallet.

Tell me how much.” The owner gave a figure and Trent wrote him a check. The police waited for him to sign the note before they put cuffs on him and took him away.
