My POV before this whole situation is concurrent with that of @ImNovaaa's. All I have to describe in detail was that I was providing cover fire with no specific target at the watchtowers, in order to give my group members a chance to move around and get a shot on the group dubbed "The Militia." I couldn't get a good shot after waiting for some time, so I just continued to waste bullets on the watchtower to keep their men away or hope I caught someone through the wooden wall. Once the situation developed to a point that my teammates were very close to the base, they decided to storm it and bring an end to the lengthy conflict we had over the course of a day or two prior. I ran from my warehouse I was set up in, and proceeded to assist in storming the compound. As I listened to the conversation exchanged between their leader, claiming a name of "Connor Riley", I stood guard for awhile at the door to see if he would come out while Levi King and Chris Iris spoke to him. Then, I was instructed to check if there were anybody approaching the compound from afar, and was told to go to the hospital. I decided it best to stay at this compound, and checked each watchtower for a vantage point and any people in the distance. As I climbed one of the watchtowers, there stood a fully kitted and armed man just standing there. In an act of impulse to spare my life, and because the rifle in the man's hand was raised, I decided to point blank fire at him. I at the time of course had no idea whatsoever that this Francis Powers gentleman was just loading in--and again, I'll make the claim that the timing between the two of us was terrible.
