On Tuesday an unidentified good woman with a gun saw a law enforcement officer being attacked and shot his alleged attacker with her handgun.
The incident occurred outside a Chevron in Dawson County, Georgia.
According to Fox 5, Sgt. Randy Harkness gave a homeless man a courtesy ride to the Chevron and was giving him some money when the man allegedly began assaulting the officer. A woman sitting in a car noticed the assault, grabbed her gun and stepped in to help the officer.
The Chevron owner said the woman “shot off a round. The guy got off the police officer and she shot another round and he was running that way I think, there was three shots,”
Law enforcement indicates the homeless man was hit “by at least one slug,” yet ran across the street to a McDonald’s where he allegedly punched a 75-year-old woman in the face. Authorities believe he was trying to steal the woman’s car.
The homeless man was tackled by customers and held for police.
After the man was arrested, the Chevron owner said, “It could have been worse, mate, thank you for that lady who was carrying.”
