around 10.00 a.m. three gendarmes arrived from Łopuszno to detain Julian Piec, resident in Chełmce, for he had run away from the camp for youth laborers. Upon seeing the gendarmes, Julian Piec tried to escape towards the cemetery. The gendarmes noticed him, however, and fired off a few shots from their rifles in his direction, wounding him in the back. One of the gendarmes then approached the wounded Julian Piec and fired three more rounds into him. I was an eyewitness to this incident.
