A suspected car prowler shot two King County, Washington, Sheriff’s Office deputies on Monday afternoon. One of the deputies returned fire and killed the suspect. A cell phone is credited with saving one of the deputies from serious injury.

King County deputies responded to a call about a suspicious man prowling around some cars at an apartment complex in Woodinville, Washington, on Monday afternoon, KIRO7 reported. When the deputies arrived they observed a man walking around with a rifle case over his shoulder.

The two deputies, both in their 50s, approached the man who pulled a gun and started shooting, witnesses told the local news outlet. The suspect fired at least two times — striking both of the deputies.

The witness said one bullet struck a deputy in the upper arm. She said the second had been shot from behind.

It turned out the second deputy’s cell phone saved him from serious injury. The bullet shattered the cell phone and slowed or stopped the bullet, the local TV station reported. The deputy suffered abrasions and cuts from the shattered phone. . . .

I wonder when the peaceful protests, riots and looting for the car prowler will begin?

I am glad the officers are okay. Prayers for the officers involved and their families … and the family of the car prowler
