When a man and woman became involved in an altercation in their vehicle at 1:30 a.m. in Prince Solms Park in New Braunfels, TX, seven soldiers from Fort Hood intervened to resolve the situation between the two.

 

Thinking the situation was resolved, the soldiers went on their way, but unbeknownst to them, the good samaritans had only merged the couple’s anger and directed it toward them.

 

The soldiers, ages 18-25, told police the female retrieved a 9 mm handgun under the driver’s seat and handed it to her boyfriend, who immediately began shooting at the soldiers.

 

New Braunfels Police said the soldiers stated they were forced to run to their vehicles for cover as the suspect continued to fire in their direction. One soldier was able to retrieve his personal handgun and shoot “cover fire” to ensure his fellow soldiers could find cover.

 

The male suspect, a 24-year-old from San Antonio,
and charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police arrested and charged the female suspect, a 26-year-old from San Antonio, with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

 

None of the seven soldiers were harmed in the shooting and police confirmed none of them will face any charges.

 

Imagine that: Fort Hood soldiers, when armed, were able to successfully defend themselves from a shooter. Now if only they were allowed to do the same thing on base.
