The two heavily armed gunmen who opened fire at a Muhammed cartoon event in Garland, Texas, Sunday were stopped by a traffic officer with a pistol, police said.
The suspects’ names have not yet been released, but a police spokesman for the Garland Police Department said Monday they arrived at the event wearing “protective gear” and carrying “assault rifles.”
“He did what he was trained to do and under the fire he was put under he did a very good job and probably saved lives,” a Garland Police Department spokesman told reporters.
