I should have put in at the end of that post that Hugh - the guard in line with the Ragers - passed 1d6 on his In Sight test, snap-fired and missed ... oops ...
Anyway, we pick up the action with Part 4 of Response to the Lower Lab ...
Activation roll: Zeds 6, Humans 2
Barley's panicked firing at the emerging monsters had warned his team of the threat, but Shelldrake's shout, "REMEMBER YOUR TRAINING!!!" was what saved their lives.

The initial reports had said 8 staff were trapped in the offices, but only seven walked out ...
Hugh, at the back of the group was the first to notice - he'd done a quick headcount as the trapped staff and hurried past him to get to the stairs. "I'm just going to check something boss," he said to Shelldrake.
"'Kay. Be careful," came the reply as Hugh turned and walked into the offices ....
