Hero cop who took down Texas mall shooter

A hero cop who brought down the Texas mall shooter made a desperate call for backup moments before shooting dead the AR-15-wielding gunman who killed eight people. Children were among those killed during the bloodbath outside the H&M at Allen Premium Outlets in Allen, Texas at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

The shooter was eventually killed by an anonymous police officer, who was on the scene on an unrelated call but rushed over when he heard the shots outside H&M. New audio footage now reveals how the officer made a frantic phone call begging his colleagues to join him on the scene, radioing: “I need everyone I’ve got.”

He bravely ran towards the active shooter, who was armed with 60 rounds and had shot more than a dozen people at the time, and killed him. About two minutes after first calling for backup, the cop said, ‘I shot him down.’ Minutes later, another voice is heard on the radio saying: ‘We have victims. I need an ambulance.’ The FBI raided the home of the suspect killed after the massacre of civilians.
