This is why the cops get nervous.
Frankly, they do not relax.
A Pennsylvania State Police trooper who was shot three times during a violent confrontation with a speeding driver saved his own life by applying a tourniquet, police said.
Cpl. Seth Kelly, 39, remained hospitalized in critical but stable condition Thursday after undergoing a second surgery, state police said. Kelly was shot when a traffic stop turned into a gunfight along the side of State Route 33 near State Route 191 in Plainfield Township, Northampton County Tuesday.
Kelly, a 13-year veteran, suffered wounds to his neck, shoulder area and leg and had to undergo the additional surgery to remove a bullet.
The suspect, 22-year-old Daniel Khalil Clary, is charged with two counts of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, in addition to two counts of criminal homicide, assault of a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault and other related offenses, according to charging documents.
