Oz fires at one of the man, misses his head [Strike: 11], but hits him
full on the chest [Damage: 70MD]. The man's armor is all but
vaporized, and he is killed instantly.

Oz's men take advantage of the confusion generated by the killing to
close the distant. In seconds they are over the walls of the house. In
the time it takes Oz to make it to the ruined house, the two soldiers
have entered the ruins. Oz comes over the walls to see the soldiers
under his command locked in hand to hand combat with three enemy
combatants (the fourth is lying on the ground, dead from Oz's shot).

The fourth is a little more than a boy, perhaps fourteen years old. He
sees Oz and fires a shot from a laser pistol [Strike: 7]. which Oz
manages to dodge out of the way of [Dodge: 15].

OOC: Okay, so Oz's men are grappling with two of the defenders, and
the third, a boy, has just fired at Oz.
