    Guy with .357 assists responding officer

    Brownwood area in Texas

    An couple in their 50s from out of state had 2 dogs that evidently were wandering to a neighboring space in a trailer park, and relieving themselves. The man staying in that space warned the couple about their dogs wandering to his space and said he would shoot them.
    Well, the dogs wandered over again, argument ensued, and as the owner was walking away the suspect retrieved a handgun and shot him in the back, then shot him again at close range. The wife came screaming out of their trailer and the suspect chased her down and shot her.
    A responding officer from Early, TX PD arrived and the suspect now had a rifle and opened fire on the officer. The suspect had cover behind a tree and the officer couldn't get a shot on him. Another resident saw what was happening and from an estimated 165 yards took a shot with his .357 revolver hitting the suspect in the leg, knocking him down. He hit him four more times and the officer hit him 6 times with his patrol rifle killing him.

    1. GREAT job on the guy assisting the officer, he had a different angle and got good shots on him that the officer couldn't get from his position

    2. shot from estimated 165yds....never say never, if you have the opportunity practice some long distance shots because you never can tell

    3. absolutely ridiculous that this idiot took and argument over dogs pooping in his yard and turned it into a double homicide/active shooting situation

    I want to go to Brownwood and buy this guy a steak dinner for helping a brother officer, KUDOS to him!!!!

    Wow..now that's good shooting. All the more reason to have a rifle on standby in case you need to make a long distance shot.

    I doubt the officer was expecting it before it happened, would have liked to seen the look on his face when he figured it out.

    That's why I am such an advocate of long range handgunning. 357 magnum certainly has the power to do the job on human targets at that range, and a bit farther.

    I wonder if the " helper " was an Elmer Keith follower?

    But I sure would buy him a drink or two or three or more and a dinner!

    165 yards? The guy must have an 18-inch barrel and a sight on that .357!

    Not to mention steady hands!

    Maybe they meant feet?

    At any rate, kudos to the guy... even at 165 feet...

    I tend to doubt the distance. Nevertheless, that old Texas boy with his .357 is a good man to have on your flank.

    Have to wonder about the dog owners lack of respect for other peoples property.

    165 yards, that is one heck of a shot, kudos for assisting the officer.

    Bravo Zulu Mr. Stacy!

    My thoughts and prayers to the family of the murdered dog owners..... and I'm glad that 02 waster was put down like the rabid wild monster he was.

    Even a 100 yd. shot with a .357 handgun is a heckuva shot! Mr. Stacy did it 3 times, under fire!

    The guy assisting him. From the moment he realized it to when he realized the range.

    Good shooting!

    I'm glad he and the officer are OK.
