A senior citizen from Columbus, Ohio became an unlikely hero when some quick thinking on his part helped police capture an armed suspect who was on the run. The citizen, only known by the name “Bill,” had just exited a library in West Columbus while being accompanied by his granddaughter. That’s when he heard the commotion and saw police chasing a suspect who had his hand tucked into his waistband.
Frantic shouts of “Get down on the ground!” and “Gun! Gun!” could be heard in various footage provided by the Columbus Division of Police. “Bill” could hardly get out of the way because he was old and was using a cane. However, “Bill” didn’t freeze either and used the cover of the pillars to peek at the suspect’s progress. The police were lagging behind but the suspect’s path would make him pass beside “Bill” so our hero did the only thing he could which was to extend his leg at the right time which caused the suspect to trip and lose his gun. This allowed the officers to catch up and arrest him.
Watch the breath-taking chase here and the amazing way that “Bill” took down the suspect:
“Bill” didn’t just do an outstanding service for the community, he also saved the suspect’s life. One officer said that he was about a second away from pulling the trigger when he saw the suspect go down. This just shows that our mind is still our greatest weapon.
