Monroeville officer talks about saving man’s life during mall shooting

Tonight that officer is talking for the first time only to Marcie Cipriani. Marcie. Reporter: well, there is no question there is mee emotional. He tells me it took time for him to be able to talk about what happened without crying. It is easy to see why. He is the reason a husband and father didn’t die that day at the mall. 400 mall circle drive. An underage male with a gunshot wound. P.M. February 7th. Got shot wound in the shoulder. Chaos inside the Monroeville mall was just beginning. Put into the trend outside of Macy’s. Exited by car. Grabbed my rifle and go bag. Pierre Defe lees was one of the first to arrive. Knowing by the desperate radio transmissions that he would likely find a violent scene. There is a large amount of blood. Rifle in hand and unaware if the gunman was shooting, a man lying on the floor, that man was Thomas singleton who had been shot while walking inside Macy’s with his wife and young son. I wasn’t going to let just this guy die on the mall floor. That wasn’t going to be his last day he saw his dad on the mall floor.

He said that was his motivation but his training came in and he knew the man was dying fast. I couldn’t place a tourniquet because and gave it to ems. He stopped the bleeding seven minutes after the 911 call. I do believe if he waited, the patient would have died on the way to the hospital. Police were trained to use tourniquets just this past September when Monroeville issued them to each officer. Takes about 30 seconds to learn how to do that p. He is not only a police officer but a tactical paramedic but still this is his first time using the tourniquet and Schwartz said that simple act saved singleton’s life. He is certain of it. Though he wasn’t on scene, he watched the care later from the mall’s cameras. You could see this patient dying in front of your eyes on camera. And I don’t believe he would have survived. It was very close when he came to the hospital. 24 minutes after the call for help, singleton was at forbs regional as his his wife and Yvonne jones both shot in the mall as well.

Single top continues for hours with fellow police officers checking the mall, clearing the seen and searching for the shooter but the singletons weighed on his mind. I have been thinking about all of them off and on for the past couple weeks. After released from the hospital, the police officer knew he today shad to see the family again. As soon as the wife saw me, she burst into tears. She immediately recognized him. As soon as I met him, he said, I remember your voice, I remember you tell meg whing me what was going on.

The wife said everything was so chaotic and I was so calm. That reassured her that things were in the process of coming under control. That makes it all worth while. That’s what it is all about. And the reason he said he is grateful that he answered that call for help so quickly. Police charged 17-year-old thorn hill with the shooting inside the mall and since then the mall has put age restrictions in place after certain hours and past Friday police opened substation there as violent as the shooting was
