In the original Blade Runner, a blade runner named Holden administers the Voigt-Kampff test, which is designed to distinguish replicants from humans based on their emotional response to questions. The test subject, Leon Kowalski, shoots Holden on the second question.

How did he escape the Tyrell Corporation after the shooting?

It is a heavily fortified building. They probably have armed guards who would have shot at Leon without a moment's hesitation.

Is there anything from any source that provides more information on this scene?

    Given the test area looked like some boring cube farm, I didn't assume they were at the ziggurat HQ. – Radhil Feb 19 '18 at 14:25

    Leon escaped from the Tyrell corporation and Luv walked right into a secure area of LAPD not once but twice in the 2049 movie. What lax security! – LincolnMan Feb 21 '18 at 8:29
  • There's no mention of how Leon escapes/leaves specifically. I'd hazard a guess it is because he still has his pass and could walk out in the chaos? In the novel it is Polokov who gets Holden; but, even there, it doesn't say specifically how he escaped (although he was using a W.P.O. identification, which would carry more weight as identification when leaving the scene). – wcullen Apr 27 '18 at 18:11
