Detectives say when Cobb came inside the Raising Cane's he had a gun and grabbed an employee. That's when the off-duty deputy confronted the suspect. All of it happened in front of customers and employees.

"Officer Skip, that's the guy who saved the day. He came in and he pretty much you know he pretty much had the gun out, like, you know 'drop the weapon' because he had his hand on a gun and he was like, 'no, I'm not going to hurt her' that was his exact words and he said, "I said drop the weapon." And he still wouldn't listen and he fired five times into his chest at point blank range," Bralin Henderson told ABC13.
