Good Samaritan shoots, kills suspect beating wounded DPS trooper on I-10
The suspect shot the trooper in the right shoulder, and was "getting the better of the trooper" in a fight that immediately followed.

Milstead said the suspect was on top of the trooper striking his head on the pavement.

According to Milstead, a man traveling westbound on I-10 with his wife in the car, pulled over to help the trooper.

The man retrieved a gun from his car and fired at the suspect after the suspect refused to stop attacking the trooper, Milstead said.

The suspect died as a result of the shooting and the man called for help using the trooper's radio, according to Milstead.

Glad it worked out. One thing we know for sure is the suspect who shot/beat the trooper won't do that again.

Situations like this are a good reminder that learning medical skills like First Aid, CPR, Stop the Bleed, or even TCCC can make a big difference in a shooting situation.

Taking a life is not an easy thing. I pray daily before I leave my home that I will not have to discharge my weapon that day but I also ask that I am would be capable to defend life if needed.

I’m glad the trooper is recovering and that the passerby was courageous enough to defend this trooper’s life.
