Good Samaritans who helped officer after being shot share their stories
EUSTIS, Fla. – On Dec. 19th, a Eustis police officer, Captain Gary Winheim, was shot while on the job. But while that was happening, good Samaritans sought to help law enforcement that day, and those heroes were recognized at the Eustis City Commission meeting. King said his brother ended up following the shooter, while on the phone with 911, helping to let the police know where the shooter ended up, near a junkyard. Pastor Brooks Braswell of the First Baptist Church of Umatilla said his church served as a central hub for law enforcement during the man-hunt. Pastor Braswell said it was thanks to the generosity of local restaurants, that they were able to provide law enforcement with hot meals.
