From "Witness to Death" by Dave White

Witness to DeathJohn Brighton, your typical public school teacher, has decided to follow his ex's new boyfriend, hoping to catch him cheating on her.  Instead...

Digging his nails into his palms, John took a deep breath and stepped forward.

Reaching the edge of the building—still ten feet from the edge of the river—John turned right.  As he did, he saw the group of men had stopped and were looking at Frank Carnathan, who was walking toward them, albeit slower than he was walking before.   One of the men, an Arabic looking one, not wearing a trenchcoat yelled, “That’s Peter!”  After he spoke, he stopped walking.  The trenchcoats kept coming.

Frank stopped, dropped his hands at his sides.  Then he turned back toward John and broke out into a sprint.

Behind Frank, the five men in trenchcoats pointed guns at him.
