Hero Saved Lives In Seattle Shooting
Seattle city leaders are praising a hero who prevented more victims in Wednesday’s shooting.
Asst. Police Chief Jim Pugel described what he saw from a video that captured the shooting at Café Racer. He says the hero was sitting next to the suspect when he started firing at people.
Pugel: "The hero picked up a stool and threw it at the suspect, hit him. Picked up another stool, and hit him, this time, suspect is pointing at him. During that time two or possibly three people made their escape and the suspect was between them and the door."
Pugel spoke at a press conference Thursday.
