Utah Firing Squad Execution: Silent, Chilling - CBS News

Utah Firing Squad Execution: Silent, Chilling - CBS News

(AP) The explosive reports sent a volley of .30-caliber bullets from the five marksmen into the chest of Ronnie Lee Gardner. I was expecting to flinch but didn't as I watched his execution from the witness room. It was so quick that for a split-second I wondered if it had actually happened. There was no blood splattered across the white cinderblock wall at the Utah State Prison. No audible sounds from the condemned. I couldn't see his eyes. I never saw the guns and didn't hear the countdown to the trigger-pull.
