If you thought you had a crumby Monday commute this morning, check out this video of a hero from Houston getting out of his car and dragging a wounded cop out of a gunfight.
Resident John Lally was not planning on being a hero when he was driving to work up Highway 59, but he came upon an active shoot-out between police and a man who was driving what was believed to be a stolen car.
It all started when Officer John Gibson had tried to pull the man over on this suspicion, but a chase started when the driver failed to stop. After crashing into several cars, Gibbons approached the vehicle with commands to get out and get on the ground when the suspect started shooting and hit Gibson in the leg.
“As soon as I jump out of the car there’s gunshots going off,” Mr. Lally told Fox 26. “Then I looked to my left and saw that cop get shot.”
“That’s when I grabbed that cop by his vest and dragged him all the way back to my work truck,” he said. “I just didn’t want him to get shot again, that was my main focus,” he told Inside Edition.
Lally sat with Gibson while officers applied a tourniquet to his leg. He comforted the wounded man, taking his hand and saying “I love cops dearly, bro.”
The suspect tried to escape but died from gunshot injuries.
