Sheriff Larry Gilbert sent in the documentation on Deputy Fredrick’s “save” incident stating that his officer was shot in the right breast area, the bullet deforming as it hit the K30 plate. He states the round was either a .38 or .357. Whichever, it was lodged in the Second Chance® vest Fredrick was wearing the morning he stopped a vehicle with no tags. As Fredrick approached the driver of the car he had stopped the door swung open and the driver stepped out. When told to put his hands where they both could be seen, the driver came around with a revolver firing one shot at Fredrick. The slug pushed Fredrick back as he drew his own weapon firing once at the subject. As Fredrick called for assistance, the driver fired again and sped away.
