The distinctive ring of aluminum bouncing against brick and pavement made Ed snarl, "I said, hands up!"
The two darker guys obeyed. Blondie hesitated, spat a curse, whirled on one sneakered heel, and hightailed it down the alley. The other two bolted after him, moving with the herd instinct of spooked deer.
Ed vented a roar of adrenaline, aggravation, and sheer rage, but didn't give chase; safety of the victim always came first. Besides, he'd gotten a good enough look at the perps to call an APB on their asses.
Kneeling by the crumpled body at the edge of the alley, Ed trained his flashlight on the still form. The man wore bright red skinny pants, a fashionable pearl jacket far too thin for the weather, and a lavender shirt now splattered with the blood that was pouring from a scalp wound. A James shopping bag spilled equally colorful contents onto the pavement. The victim's skull looked whole, but one arm was bent at a horribly wrong angle.
"Shit," Ed whispered, but turned so that he could get fingers on the guy's throat, trying to ignore the fact that the man was beautiful, with high cheekbones, a slender nose, and thick long eyelashes as dark as a shadow's kiss. A pulse fluttered under smooth shaved skin, and Ed sat back with a sigh of relief, dug out his radio, switched to the channel for dispatch, and hit the talk button.
