Texan Cop Saves the Day By Felling Gunman with Fatal Shot Fired from Over 100 Yards Away While Holding Reins to Two Horses

And probably yelling “Heigh-ho, Silver!” as he did it:
The gunman who attacked the federal courthouse, the Mexican consulate and the Austin Police Department headquarters was killed by a single shot taken from 312 feet away by mounted patrol Sgt. Adam Johnson who also held the [reins] of two horses.
Sgt. Johnson told Chief Art Acevedo that he credits “divine intervention” and that the other officers in the mounted patrol unit who were advancing on the shooter should get the majority of the credit.
In case you were unaware, Texans are awesome.
Link at the link, since there really wasn’t a separate unit of awesome I could quote there.
