Good Samaritans recognized by City for tackling shooter, saving woman's life

Two Good Samaritans are being recognized by the City of Austin for saving a woman's life during a shooting in Northwest Austin.

Armando Zamora and Stephen Giovinazzo were given a distinguished service award. 

Back in November, the two men tackled a shooter at a bar in Northwest Austin. The gunman tried to shoot his ex-girlfriend, who was at work. 


The customers tackled the shooter and wrestled the gun away, holding him down until police arrived.

Zamora said APD quickly responded to the shooting and made a very traumatic experience a lot less painful.
