Below is the original text from this story:
Waco Police are investigating a shooting at the Red Lobster restaurant area near Richland Mall.
An ambulance rushed one person to the hospital while police search for the shooters.
Police say just after 11:00 am on Tuesday morning, two people got out of a white truck and shot at a person in a red car in the parking lot of the restaurant.
Investigators have told everyone in the Red Lobster they need to stay inside so they can be interviewed.
Right now there is no word on the victim’s condition, only that he is in a critical condition after getting shot in the head.
One witness spoke with FOX44 about not hesitating to jump out of his truck and stopping the victim’s car as it was moving just seconds after the shooting.
The man who didn’t want to disclose his name, but says, “I talked to him, he was still, he was mumbling and moving around in the seat. It looked like a pretty bad head wound, but I am not a doctor.”
He explains, “The car was still in gear, the tires were spinning. It looked like the car was on fire. I actually parked, I got out of my vehicle, went down got into the red car and actually put the car in park. “
He continues, “I left it at that because police and ambulance were already in route, I could hear siren.”
Officers are thankful for his quick reaction.
Waco PD Sgt. Patrick Swanton says, “A good samaritan was able to stop that vehicle and put it in park.”
Police say one of the two people in the white pickup got out and walked over to the victim in the red car.
Swanton says, “A gunshot was heard and at the point the red car moved forward striking another vehicle in the parking lot.”
Investigators are trying to figure out what led up to this incident.
He says, “We don’t know if it was from the altercation that has just occurred or if the individuals involved in potentially knew each other.”
As for the witness, this was not his first time seeing this type of violence.
“As a volunteer fireman, you see a lot of things.”
As of now, the two suspects are still on the loose and there is no word yet on the victim’s condition.
