“Good Samaritan” legally carrying gun shoots man attacking Arizona state trooper

Jan 13, 2020 | Featured

“Thank you because I don’t know if my trooper would be alive today without your assistance,” Arizona DPS Col. Frank Milstead said.

The attack occurred in Tonopah, Arizona. The video above is from two different news stories on the rescue. From KABC:

An Arizona trooper trying to help a motorist in a rollover crash was shot in an ambush-style attack by a random suspect, who was then fatally shot by a Good Samaritan driving by. . . .

The suspect shot [the trooper] at least once in the chest-shoulder area and fought the trooper to the ground.

A passerby saw the fight unfolding and stopped to render aid to the trooper, who asked for help.

However, the suspect ignored the Good Samaritan’s orders to stop attacking the trooper.

That’s when the passerby went to his car, grabbed a gun and fatally shot the suspect, reported ABC15. . . .

    This was the incident in 2017; three years ago, no?
    Still a great example but not recent. – Best, Matt..
