January 12, 2017, Tonopah, AZ – An Arizona Trooper was responding to a rollover traffic accident involving a badly wounded motorist when the trooper was shot and viciously attacked. Good-samaritan-shoots-saves-AZ-trooper

The trooper was attempting traffic control when suspect came from an unknown location and shot the trooper once in the shoulder and once in the chest, and then assaulted the trooper, wrestling him to the ground. The suspect repeatedly slammed the trooper’s head into the ground.

The struggle was witnessed by a passerby in a motor vehicle, who got out of his car to render aid to the trooper, who could not use his right arm to defend himself. The Good Samaritan attempted to get the assailant to stop, but when the trooper asked for help, the man returned to his car, retrieved a personally owned firearm, and shot the trooper’s attacker.

Another passerby stopped to help, and called dispatch on the trooper’s portable radio. The woman in the rollover accident and the trooper’s assailant died from their injuries; the trooper is listed in stable condition and is expected to recover fully. The names of those involved in the incident are not being released at this time.

    Thank God for this good Samaritan with his personal carry gun. The trooper would be dead if not for the timely intervention! Hope there are several witnesses (who tell the actual truth and nothing fake).
