It all started when officers were chasing Philip Oshea, 46, at 4 am after he robbed a bar and carjacked a woman.

Police arrived at the bar just as Oshea was driving away. A chase ensued and lead to two gunfights.

The first shootout happened during the chase. The second after Oshea crashed the car into a fence.

None of the police officers were shot, thanks to Kasper.

One officer was injured while diving for cover.

Oshea had an extensive criminal history. He had been to prison several times and was wanted for arrest in North Carolina for armed robbery.

Police are happy that the “dangerous individual” is off the streets.
