Watch Epic Moment Ex-con Saves Wounded Cop from Deadly Shootout

A new video making the rounds on social media captured the moment an ex-con jumped to help a wounded cop during a lethal shootout in Houston, Texas.

John Phillip Lally risked his life to save Houston Police Dept—Chief Troy Finner, who later praised the ex-con for his actions.

Lally had encountered what appeared to be a car accident while driving to work when he jumped onto the scene to see if anyone was injured.

However, Lally had landed in the middle of a deadly shootout.

“As soon as I jump out of the car, there’s gunshots going off,” Lally told KRIV-TV.

“Then I looked to my left and saw that cop get shot.”

As The Blaze reported:

“Police said earlier that day, Officer J. Gibson had tried to pull over a suspect in a stolen vehicle, but the suspect drove off with Gibson in chase.

The suspect crashed into several cars on Highway 59 before Gibson approached the suspect’s vehicle on foot, giving him commands.

The suspect instead fired at Gibson and shot him in the leg.

“That’s when I grabbed that cop by his vest and dragged him all the way back to my work truck,” Lally said.

Lally stayed with Gibson as another officer tied a tourniquet to his leg.

“I’ve been to jail a million times, bro,” said Lally to Gibson in the video.

“And I love cops dearly, bro. You’re gonna be all right.”

Meanwhile, the suspect entered another car and attempted to flee the scene.

But after the suspect was shot several times by a police officer, he died later at a hospital.

Investigators said the suspect was involved in a carjacking incident.

“A truly reformed individual is a person that we can use. He stepped up,” Finner said of Lally.

The man told Inside Edition he had numerous run-ins with law enforcement but said he had turned his life around.

“It sucks that people got injured and even the man who caused the whole thing lost his life, but I think a higher power knows what they’re doing,” said Lally.

“If y’all see somebody that you can help, help them. That’s the main moral of the story,” he added.
