In the early morning SA leader Ernst Rohm was arrested by Hitler as part of Operation Hummingbird. Hitler had told Rohm to arrange a gathering of the top SA members for a dinner that night, but instead Hitler showed up early that morning while they were still in their hotel beds and arrested them.

The afternoon after the Night of the Long Knives murders had began Göring held a press conference where he stated that the uprising against the German government led by SA leader Ernst Rohm was put down.

He also announced that Kurt von Schleicher was part of the coup and was shot when he resisted arrest which was a lie (they also shot von Schleicher’s wife who was a witness).

Nazis murdered Karl Heinsoth who was a homosexual friend of Rohm. They had exchanged homo-erotic letters when Rohm had went to Bolivia.

Rohm was kept in his cell at Stadelheim prison for a couple of days after the initial arrest. Finally on July 1st a gun with a single bullet was placed in his cell and he was told he had ten minutes to shoot himself before the guards did it for him - to which he replied that if Hitler wanted him dead he could come and shoot him himself.
After the alloted time was up Michael Lippert and Theodor Eicke returned to the cell where they unloaded their revolvers into Rohm whom was standing bear-chested in defiance.
