Cawley was on foot patrol at 1035 when he received a call, “man with a gun.” By the time he got to the scene the suspect fled the area. During a search of the immediate area, Cawley was approaching the hiding place of the suspect. As the suspect saw Cawley approaching him, he pulled out a .380 auto and shot Cawley in the stomach. The round stuck the Level II Second Chance® Cawley was wearing. The shooter took off on foot while Cawley broadcast a flash message on his radio, while he pursued his assailant. Officer responded in time to surround the shooter and shoot him dead as he fired back at the officers.
