On August 13, 2014, Officer J.D. Calhoun of the Houston Police Department was dispatched to a call regarding a suspicious person with a weapon. Upon arrival at the scene, Officer Calhoun and his partner located the suspect, who then fled on foot. The officers gave chase and Officer Calhoun caught up to the suspect and was able to tackle him.
As Officer Calhoun wrestled the suspect to the ground, the suspect placed a .380 caliber weapon against the officer’s left side and shot him. Officer Calhoun’s ABA® HP02 Level II armor stopped the round and he was able to stay in the fight. The officer then returned fire, fatally wounding the assailant.
After the incident, Officer Calhoun was treated and released from the hospital.
We welcome Officer J.D. Calhoun, SAVE #1899, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
