‘I’ll take a bullet’: Watch officers evacuate the building during the San Bernardino attack
People who were inside the Inland Regional Center during Wednesday’s attack put their lives in the hands of an officer who led them to safety, a video shows.
“If you’re not cool, I’m not walking them,” the officer shouts to an unseen colleague as the people stand anxiously waiting.
When satisfied the way is clear, the officer tells the people to keep their hands “where I can see them,” and head for a deputy, where they’ll turn left.
The people comply, showing their hands and remaining mostly silent except for a few who thank the officer as they pass.
The officer assures them: “I’ll take a bullet before you do, that’s for damn sure.”
An employee shared the video with KPCC-FM (89.3)
