Theo confirms “We’re in,” on his walkie-talkie, while Heinrich, the driver of the Pacific Courier truck, acknowledges the message. Heinrich backs the truck into the loading dock.

Meanwhile, Theo leaves the lobby desk for the facilities automation room nearby. He turns on a computer monitor, seats himself at a keyboard, and starts typing commands.

At the same time, Karl approaches the express elevators to the 30th floor carefully, his pistol drawn. He reaches into is pocket and pulls out a device the size and shape of a hockey puck. Karl rolls the puck around the corner to where the elevator guard is standing. The guard glances at the rolling puck, only to receive the glare and noise of its flash and bang when it explodes. Blinded, the guard doesn’t see Karl lining up to shoot him. Karl shoots the guard three times in the chest.

Back in the underground parking garage, Heinrich lowers the truck’s lift ramp onto the loading dock. Eleven men step out of the back of the truck, including Hans Gruber, the goateed leader of the group. They all make their way through the freight entrance.
