Defense calls Patrick Herr. He was a paramedic for Action Care Ambulance in 2012.
Herr said when he arrived the gunman had on a suicide vest and underneath that he was wearing some sort of flack jacket.
"He smiled and did not respond verbally... it was a large smile with teeth showing... very wide," Herr said about meeting the gunman.
Herr said he went with the gunman into Denver Health. He was still repeating "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" occasionally when they arrived.
Herr said the gunman did make eye contact with him.
Herr said he saw a hematoma on the gunman's forehead - a bruise.
Herr said it was raised - which is not what the other paramedic (Leadem) said.

Martens: "He had good eye contact. He had normal eye contact with me."
Martens confirmed that the gunman often paused and looked up before answering questions.
Martens: "He was in one of the rubber cells, BC5. He was placed on a suicide watch. I was assessing his needs, whether he was suicidal."
Martens said the gunman told him "I'm scared of what I'll do." And "I'm trying to keep it all together."
Martens the gunman also said "The system, all the systems..." and "I do not know that you are real."
On Nov. 12 the gunman was lying naked on the floor, Martens said.
Martens asked if there was anything he could do to help and the gunman said "Water."

Martens said the gunman seemed upset based on his facial expressions and trembling voice.
