A prescription would have worked better than a gun to get drugs. Maybe some crackhead detoxing.

Jacob Muhle a 21yo felon shot 2 vehicles in the pharmacy drive thru and then went into the store shooting. An off duty officer was in the store. He and a bystander tackled the suspect to the ground.

Glad to hear that two off duty officers were close enough to take this POS down before he killed or injured anyone. Great job to these officers!!🇺🇸

Another great example of our heroes in blue never being "off duty" & protecting us citizens no matter what danger they encounter! Respect!
