A paramedic fatally shot a 22-year-old man who reportedly shot him and his partner while they rendered aid to the man’s girlfriend.
Paramedics John Spriggs Sr., 21, and Joshua Godfrey, 35, were rendering aid in their ambulance to a 20-year-old woman when her boyfriend, Kevin Curl Jr. approached them “aggressively,” according to police.
After refusing to back up, Curl pushed Spriggs, who then punched Curl, reported police. Curl then pulled out a gun and fired it at both paramedics, hitting them in the chest, pelvic, and abdomen areas, reported the Democrat Gazette.
Spriggs then fired back at Curl, striking him, police said. When police arrived, Curl was found dead on the kitchen floor of a residence with a gunshot wound to his chest, reported police. (RELATED: Concealed Carry Permit Holders Grows Seven-Fold In 20 Years)
