After Lester has been shot, Jane and Ricky Fitts come downstairs to the kitchen to investigate. In the first shot blood is shown dripping from the kitchen table from the POV of Jane and Ricky Fitts looking through a crack in the door.

The POV then returns back to the dripping blood through the crack in the door despite just showing the audience that Jane and Ricky have already opened the door and discovered Lester.
