This is Timothy Shea, a Police Officer for the Lower Swatara Township in Pennsylvania. On Monday night, Timothy responded to a domestic dispute reporting a woman was being held against her will at a trailer park.
Upon arrival, officers attempted to enter the mobile home and were fired upon. Timothy was struck by gunfire in the leg. He kept his composure and placed a tourniquet on himself. Timothy joined his partner and rescued the woman being held hostage, bringing her to safety. The suspect was taken into custody afterward.
Timothy was treated at the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Timothy Shea is an American Hero and the folks in Pennsylvania should be grateful to have such brave man serving their communities.
Great job, Officer Shea! Regardless of the geographical jurisdiction, cops like Shea put their lives on the line each and every day and there are plenty of us left in US society who are very grateful for their service!

Awesome bravery Officer Shea!!💙💪👍 Thank God you acted to use self first aid which saved your life. Amazing the dedication and composure to continue after being shot!! You are a Special Angel!! A man of steel nerves to ignore the pain to save a life!!!!!! Love this happy ending!! Too bad shooting the suspect in the leg so he could feel the pain isn't allowed. We need harsher punishment for those who attempt to take an officer's life!! Thanks to his partner who stood by your side help save the woman. HOPE PENNSYLVANIA REWARDS YOUR BRAVERY!!
