Could you tell what she was saying when the Cop 2 retrieved her? Was she asking if Cop 1 had shot her?

Kudos to the police officer for even having the courage to take that shot. That was reminiscent of something you would see in the movies! Well done. And thanks for another amazing upload John!

Wow that officier really had balls. Very hard to make such a decision given the circumstances and the risk.

Ressurrectio says:

Warning..?? I mean I was expecting brains spilled over the sidewalk. instead routine gun slinging

Fee_ Lo says:

People knock lasers but this is exactly when they come into play. Super close quarters with a hostage. You can focus entirely on your suspect an hostage. You have visual feedback on your muzzle awareness. Especially if you have to do this with a pistol it can be a life saver.
