Washington Officer Shot 7 Times Released from Hospital

July 03, 2014  | 

A Vancouver, Wash., police officer who was shot seven times during a traffic stop is now out of the hospital and recovering at home.

Dustin Goudschaal, a six-year veteran of the Vancouver Police Department, stopped a black pickup truck believed to be stolen Monday. That's when suspect James Sapp leaned out the driver's side window and opened fire, police said.

A witness came to Goudschaal's aid and bandaged a wound on his neck before paramedics could arrive.

Can we say W A R R I O R !!! Good job brother. Heal up and continue t be an inspiration ot those who mistakenly thing if you get shot you always die.

Holy cow...warrior is right. Was he wearing his vest? Great to hear the officer received aid from a civilian.

Marshal @ 7/9/2014 7:56 AM

Wait!!!! Where is the great Lenny for this one. Didn't the shooter violate the officer's rights by shooting him? How come Lenny isn't here since he is the great defender of rights. Oh wait, it is only the rights of the criminal's that he worries about. I apologize to all the officers for posting this here and am not trying to disrespect this wounded officer but am trying to make a point with our favorite critic.

Your brothers in Australia trust that you will heal well. All too often the public are not aware of the dangers faced by law enforcement officers. We are not paid enough for this job. But then again, it is not really a job it is a calling. Stay solid brother. Matt - Queensland Police Service Officer
