Agent Alves was posted outside the hospital room of the injured suspect Alan Tanner to ensure his safety. Shortly before noon, fellow agents Renee Walker and Janis Gold arrived, and Alves reported to them Tanner's condition. He also stated that Tanner's lawyers would be arriving very soon. Agent Walker sent Alves to wait for the lawyers, and to report whenever they arrived (she planned on questioning Tanner without legal permission). Alves left, and as ordered, radioed up to inform Walker that the lawyers had entered the hospital.
After Agent Walker extracted information from Tanner, she told Agent Gold to get a ride back to the FBI building with Agent Alves.
