Cop shoots cop in front of Starbucks.

Well technically, it happened behind me since I was sitting next to the fireplace reading a book with my back turned. After the shots rang out, about 6 or 7 of us ran outside to find the seriously wounded man bleeding to death. We immediately administered first aid using my belt and some shirts as tourniquets. An employee and myself also talked him through it until the EMT's arrived. His eyes kept rolling back into his head. I though he was going to die. There was so much blood. Must have hit one of the major arteries/veins in his leg. I also discovered a bullet hole in his wrist. Everyone was so level-headed; it was amazing. Gunshots don't sound like they do in the movies. They literally sound like really loud "cap" guns.
Well done, Ss!

Oh my, I missed it on 27th. I hope the guy will recover, I hope you it will stop haunting you soon.

And if will ever want to buy a coffee in Beverly, I will go to Starbucks. While it is not perfectly safe, but at least people know what to do once something happen.

Great job. Since you're a bit far away, I'll show my respect by going for a coffee tonight at the newly opened Starbucks in my city.

Hello friends

I am doing better. Time has helped and even better is the news that the man is doing well and has even regained feeling in his leg. Thanks for your support.

Definately take care when exercising your "hero gene".

I chased an armed would-be rapist and taunted him until he drew down on me as we went around and around a truck.

I kept taunting him but stayed covered as he ran away.

I'm not as fast as I once was so I am more careful now.
