Trenton, MO, police officer Jasmine Diab, 24, a single mother of a five-year-old girl, was shot in the abdomen by a prisoner she was transporting.
A small group of concerned citizens, one of whom was armed, was able to rescue the officer and subdue the suspect without firing a shot.
Said Missouri Highway Patrol Trooper Jake Angle:
“In this case, they chose to intervene and come to an officers aid and subdue the suspect and possibly keeping him from escaping or doing more harm. I am not advocating that people need to feel that they intervene in a situation this level, however, people chose to and in this situation it was critical.”
