On April 12, 2019 Officer William “Taylor” Webb responded to an unknown medical call. Upon arrival he forced entry to the location in an attempt to render aid to an unconscious and unresponsive woman who was 8 months pregnant and bleeding profusely. As Officer Webb made entry, a male suspect ambushed him and opened fire hitting Officer Webb twice.
One 9mm round struck Officer Webb in the chest and a second round struck his hip. The round to the chest was stopped by Officer Webb’s Safariland® Xtreme® XT03 level II armor. A second officer kept the shooter engaged at the front door while another officer broke through the garage door to rescue Officer Webb.
The suspect took his own life after a long standoff. Officer Webb is recovering from the wound to the hip.
We welcome Officer William “Taylor” Webb SAVE #2067, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
