Albuquerque police say the actions of the armed citizen involved in a deadly shooting Sunday likely saved the lives of a mother and daughter.
APD spokesman Officer Simon Drobik told reporters the hero, a 12-year veteran of the National Guard, took action when he saw the pair being attacked Sunday night.
According to police, the incident unfolded Sunday night after the woman’s estranged husband crashed his car into their vehicle, got out and fired into their car, which struck the daughter. He then pulled his wife from the car and started beating her.
