A horrible situation unfolded in Tacoma, Washington this past week when police arrived at a home in answer to a domestic disturbance call.The police arrived at the house in question with the owner, Kristi Croskey, to check on the welfare of the children. As the police entered the home, the renter, a man named Bruce Randall “Zeus” Johnson II opened fire on the officers. One officer, Reginald “Jake” Gutierrez put himself between his partner, the homeowner, and the gunman in an effort to get everyone to safety. Gutierrez yelled for the others to “Get out!” of the house even as the gunman opened fire. Gutierrez was hit, but his partner and the others were able to escape.
A police sniper was eventually forced to kill the gunman after an 11-hour standoff in which the man used his two young children (6 and 8) as human shields. Now the homeowner, Ms. Croskey, is speaking out to praise the Tacoma police and to make sure that the professional race-baiters don’t get involved in the story.
