A woman who rushed to help a Dawson County deputy in trouble shared her story with Channel 2 Action News.
April Adamson was preparing to get gas at a Dawsonville Chevron gas station Dec. 5, when she sensed something was wrong, she told the news station.
That’s when she saw Sgt. Randy Harkness fall to the ground.
She fired twice at the suspect, 30-year-old Justin Alan Foster, and hit him at least once, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.
Foster had just received a courtesy ride from Harkness, a 24-year veteran of the sheriff’s office, to the gas station and Harkness was in the process of giving Foster money when he was attacked, officials said.
“He had both hands on the officer's gun trying to get it out of his holster,” Adamson said.
