A Kansas mother is alive and well today, thanks to the help from two Good Samaritans.
According to Fox 4 Kansas City, two suspects approached a woman in a Walmart parking lot in Shawnee, Kan. The woman was putting her baby in a car seat, when the suspects hit her over the head.
Luckily, a bystander came over and helped her. That’s when one of the attackers critically shot this bystander multiple times.
A second bystander came in to help and fatally shot one of the attackers.
The other suspect fled the scene, but was later caught by a K-9 team.
Police said that the bystander who was shot was alert and awake in the hospital and underwent surgery. The woman who was attacked was taken to the hospital for critical head injuries. She was then upgraded to fair condition and is expected to be released shortly. Her baby was unharmed.
Since the suspects’ motives for attacking the mother are unknown, police are still investigating the situation.
With all of the terrible shootings and incidents happening all over the world, this story is refreshing. It shows that there are still good people out there, like the two bystanders who protected the woman, because they put their lives at risk to help out another human being.
