When Yoxall came upon the scene, the officer was on the ground, being attacked by the suspect:

“He’s beating him in a savage way. Just fist after fist.”

Yoxall knew he had to do something, so he pulled over, grabbed his gun and went to Andersson’s aid:

“I yell out to the suspect to stop, I said ‘Get off him!’ His facial expression, the look in his eye (was) ‘evil’ if I had to put a word on it.”

The attacker refused to stop and Andersson confirmed to Yoxall that he needed help. Yoxall fired twice at the suspect, hitting the man, now identified as 37-year-old Leonard Penuelas-Escobar, in the chest and head, killing him.
