Garland Texas-police officer

Garland Texas was the scene of possibly the first ISIS attack on American soil, but fortunately a police officer was able to neutralize heavy fire from two suspected terrorists with semi-automatic rifles and protective gear outside a free speech event this past Sunday. The accurate shooting officer is being hailed a hero after he shot and killed both suspects using only his .45-caliber duty pistol, while they had assault rifles.

No one was killed other than the two suspects, identified as Nadir Soofi and Elton Simpson. A security officer was shot in the ankle, but was treated and released from the hospital late Sunday night.

Elton Simpson linked himself to the Islamic State via Twitter and police said they are still investigating both suspects’ links to terrorism.

So, exactly how did it all go down? Check out the cool video CNN put together that reenacts the gunfight and includes the news report:
