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.
