Sheriff’s spokesman Matt Baxter said, “During the foot chase, one of the suspects fired a round and shot Deputy Robinson in the stomach.”
At least one person witnessed the incident.
Baxter said, “The vest actually disperses the energy. You’ll get a big bruise, and some pain still, but it doesn’t actually penetrate anything.”
Baxter said, “These bulletproof vests are specifically designed with Kevlar to protect all of your vital organs. And deputies are required to wear this under their uniform.”
