Just prior to the Motorcades arrival in Dealey Plaza:< HSCA > Julia Ann Mercer Testimony Account:
While the motorcade made the one block drive down Houston towards the Texas School Book Depository Building ( TSDB ) and the accused assassin had the best shot at the president, No shots where fired.
The motorcade then made a nearly sixty degree turn, right under the sixth floor window and preceded down Elm St, the speed of the car was about 5 m.p.h.
The car then regained about 5 M.P.H. and was traveling at about 11 M.P.H. (18 Km.H) towards the R.R. overpass. At this point the shots began ringing out. There were many who thought the first shots where firecrackers. But those who where familiar with guns seemed to know immediately what they were.

Gov. Connally who was seated just in front of the President in the limousine, would latter recalled, I heard a rifle shot, I thought of nothing but a rifle shot, I turned to look over my right shoulder to try to see the President, but he couldnt see the President So he was in the process of turning to his left and had gotten to the point where he was facing straight forward when he was hit. ( More of Gov. Connally's statements in the Magic Bullet Section. )
Mrs. John F. Kennedy, on the left of the rear seat of the limousine, looked toward her left and waved to the crowds along the route. Soon after the motorcade turned onto Elm Street., she heard a sound similar to a motorcycle noise and a cry from Governor Connally, which caused her to look to her right. On turning she saw a quizzical look on her husband's face as he raised his left hand to his throat. Mrs. Kennedy then heard a second shot and saw the President's skull torn open under the impact of the bullet. As she cradled her mortally wounded husband, Mrs. Kennedy cried, "Oh, my God, they have shot my husband. I love you, Jack."
Mrs. Connally, too, heard a frightening
noise from her right. Looking over her right shoulder, she saw that the
President had both hands at his neck but she observed no blood and heard
nothing. She watched as he slumped down with an empty expression on his face.
Mrs. Connally heard a second shot fired and pulled her husband down into her lap. Observing his blood-covered chest as he was pulled into his wife's lap, Governor Connally believed himself mortally wounded. He cried out, "Oh, no, no, no. My God, they are going to kill us all." At first Mrs. Connally thought that her husband had been killed, but then she noticed an almost imperceptible movement and knew that he was still alive. She said, "It's all right. Be still." The Governor was lying with his head on his wife's lap when he heard a shot hit the President. At that point, both Governor and Mrs. Connally observed brain tissue splattered over the interior of the car. According to Governor and Mrs. Connally, it was after this shot that Kellerman issued his emergency instructions and the car accelerated.
Forrest V. Sorrels,
Special agent in charge of the Dallas district was in the lead car, in front
of the Presidential limousine:
< Warren Commission > Sorrels Testimony:
I looked back to see how close the President's car was in making the turn, because we had begun to pick up speed after we made the left-hand turn.
And I remember Mr. Lawson turned around and said, "I wish he would come on, because we are late now," or words to that effect.
And I looked at my watch, and it was just about 12:30.
And so they called on the radio to the Trade Mart that we were 5 minutes away.
And it seemed like almost instantly after that, the first shot was heard.
I just said, "What's that?" And turned around to look up on this terrace part there, because the sound sounded like it came from the back and up in that direction.
At that time, I did not look back up to the building, because it was way back in the back.
Within about 3 seconds, there were two more similar reports. And I said, "Let's get out of here" and looked back, all the way back, then, to where the President's car was, and I saw some confusion, movement there, and the car just seemed to lunch forward.
And, in the meantime, a motorcycle officer had run up on the right-hand side and the chief yelled to him, "Anybody hurt?"
He said, "Yes."
He said, "Lead us to the hospital."
And the chief took his microphone and told them to alert the hospital, and said, "Surround the building." He didn't say what building. He just said, "Surround the building." And by that time we had gotten almost in under the underpass, and the President's car had come up and was almost abreast of us
About the three shots, He would testify that:
"There was to me about twice as much time between the first and second shots as there was between the second and third shots."
About where the shots had come from:
"To the right and back. That is about the only way I can express it.
And, as I said, the noise from the shots sounded like they may have come back up on the terrace there. And that is the reason I was looking around like that when the first shot. And I continued to look out until the other two shots. And then I turned on around and looked back to where the President's car was"
He said He was looking at that terrace: ( Grassy Knoll )
"Yes; I was. And I saw just some movement of some people, but no firearms or anything like that, because we began to move out rather rapidly. And we were quite a ways down the street at that time." *** "It seems I recall someone turned around and was going in the other direction, like moving away from the street. And that is all I can recall."
He would also state:
"But the reports seemed to be so loud, that it sounded like to me in other words, that was my first thought, somebody up on the terrace, and that is the reason I looked there."
William Greer the Secret Service agent driving the presidential limousine heard a noise he thought was a backfire from a motorcycle he heard a second sound looked over his right shoulder and saw Gov. Connally fall. He also stated in the warren report, at the sound of the second shot he realized that something was wrong, and he pressed down on the accelerator.
In the Zapruder film Greer can be seen looking over his right shoulder just after Gov. Connally had been hit, he continues to look back until the President is fatally hit and then turns forward.
Roy Kellerman the other Secret Service agent in the front passenger seat of the limousine. He heard a report like a firecracker and turned to his right in the direction of the noise, He heard the president say "My God, I am hit" and saw the Presidents hands come up towards his neck, As he told the driver, "Lets get out of here, we are hit". Kellerman heard a "flurry of shots" within five seconds of the first noise
In the Zapruder film, Kellerman can be seen as the limousine emerges from the sign
looking to his right,
( And appears to be looking in to the limousines right rearview mirror.)
In the President's follow-up car on the left running board was agent Clint Hill, he heard a noise which seemed to be a firecracker, coming from his right rear. As he began to look to his right he saw President Kennedy grab at himself and lurch forward and to the left.
