ATF Agent Recalls “Worst Law Enforcement-Involved Shooting in American History”

When 29-year-old Clay Alexander heard the first gunshots, the ATF agent quickly realized, “They are shooting at me.”

Alexander, who was shot in the legs, spoke at length to the Tyler Morning Telegraph about the Feb. 28, 1993, raid on the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.

“It was very bizarre. At that point, I had never heard a gun fired in anger,” Alexander said told the newspaper. “I had never been in a gunfight in law enforcement or otherwise. If it would have only lasted a couple of seconds, that would have been one thing, but it lasted about 45 minutes.”

The standoff has caused some “dark times,” he said.
