Homeless veteran helps save shooting victim

Perhaps it’s fitting that on the week we celebrate our nation’s birth, a former soldier — now homeless — showed courage in the line of fire. In Seattle an argument between two men led to gunshots and the victim’s life was saved in part due to the actions of a homeless veteran who witnessed the scene. The Huffington Post reports:

A homeless veteran called upon his military experience to save another man’s life.

One man shot another man in Seattle after an argument between the two escalated Monday at 3 a.m., according to the Seattle Times.

The bullet struck his femoral artery causing him to lose a large amount of blood, King 5 News reports.

The wounded man ran down the street before collapsing. A few blocks away, a homeless veteran known as Staff Sgt. Royal came to his aid.
