“Very quickly, I figured out it was a possible robbery and the guy had a gun.”
Officer Stewart tried to intervene and it soon turned into a fight for his life. He said he pushed the gun downward and struggled with the suspect for about five minutes.
At one point, the suspect pointed his revolver at Officer Stewart’s head. The officer said he managed to lodge his finger between the trigger guard and the trigger, preventing the suspect from firing. Stewart said the man still tried to shoot him in the head. Eventually, Stewart also used his hand to release the revolver’s cylinder and empty out the bullets.
