Latina Texas police officer shot twice -in face and chest- and still catches suspects

NBC Latino

In the middle of an early morning traffic stop in Stafford, Texas, Officer Ann Marie Carrizales was shot twice — once in the chest and once in the face– by a gunman in a car with two other suspects.

But even after being shot, Carrizales, a former Marine and amateur boxer, managed to fire back at her attackers, blasting out the entire rear window of the car as the suspects fled.

From there, she chased the three men in their vehicle all the way from Stafford to Houston, all the while bleeding from her wounds.

“She is just amazing, she loves her job, she loves her family and she loves helping everybody she can,” says Vicki Burger, a close friend of Carrizales.
