“Romeo, away, be gone!
The citizens are up, and Tybalt slain. Stand not amaz'd. The Prince will doom thee death
If thou art taken. Hence, be gone, away!
Rom. O, I am fortune's fool!
Ben. Why dost thou stay?
Exit Romeo. Enter Citizens. CITIZEN. Which way ran he that kill'd Mercutio?
Tybalt, that murtherer, which way ran he?” source
