Greetings all....

New guy here, seeking clarification on a few points I heard while listening to a rebroadcast of continuous live coverage on NBC network radio of the JFK assassionation.  I'm not extremely knowledgeable on the subject, so please excuse questions that might be common knowledge among most of you.

1)  On two separate occasions, soon after JFK and Connelly arrived at Parkland Hospital, a reporter live at the hospital claimed to have seen a "Negro woman" bring a wounded, bloody youngster into the ER there.  He never actually said the child had been struck by bullets from the assassination attempt, but certainly insinuated that was the case.  Is there any additional information on this claim? Do we know who the child was (not looking for a name, just whether he was later identified) and what was the cause of his wounds?

2) Over the next 3-4 hours, NBC repeatedly talked about three, separate suspects.  Early on, they claimed DPD had foot chased a suspect through a railroad yard immediately after the shootings.  This individual got away.  Later, they claimed a different individual had been apprehended in Fort Worth after having driven there from Dallas soon after the shooting; no name given.  Finally, they explained Lee Oswald had been arrested in a theater, initially for shooting Officer Tippett, but eventually also identified as a suppect in the shooting of JFK and Connelly.

What do we know, if anything, about the other two suspects discussed in the live radio broadcast? Were they later confirmed to have been real, or was this a case of "fog of war" where unverified/incorrect information was broadcast at the time?

Thanks for allowing me to join, and for any information that can be provided.

Oswald Lookalike Donald Wayne House Arrested In Forth Worth 22nd November 1963

One down....thanks.  Looks like Mr House passed away about 3 years ago, was serving in the US Army at the time of the shootings.

Anyone know if Mr House ever gave an interview and/or wrote about his arrest?

On the black boy: reportedly shortly after JFK arrived a black woman brought her son to the hospital with a cut on his jaw. Apparently he was bleeding pretty badly. He was placed on a stretcher and brought into ER for treatment. The mother was hysterical and started to faint and had to be attended to. There's nothing indicating he had been shot or that the cut/wound was related to the assassination.

Here's an account by one of the nurses, Shirley Randall, with some details (scroll to page 68): https://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh21/pdf/WH21_Price_Ex_2-35.pdf

Great, thanks. Didn't think the child's injuries, although the reporter made them sound serious, were connected to the shootings.

Still looking for anyone with knowledge of the suspect DPD was said to have foot chased through a railroad yard almost immediately after the shooting.
