A Newark, NJ, woman is being praised for her quick actions to help Newark officers who were shot last week.

The shooting happened in a parking lot on Tuesday Nov. 1.

Authorities say Officers Johnny Aquino and Jabrill Paul were attempting to question Kendall Howard about another crime when he pulled out a gun and shot them. Aquino was shot in the neck and shoulder area and Paul was shot in the leg.

A good Samaritan saw this happen and moved her car to shield the officers from getting shot again. While the gunfire was going off, she also tended to Aquino’s injuries, BronxNews12 reports.

Other officers were eventually able to carry the injured officers away. They were taken to University Hospital for treatment. Paul was released the next day. Aquino was released Friday morning.
