A good guy with a gun is the best antidote to a bad guy with a gun — especially when that good guy is a state trooper. Now, the district attorney responsible for handling the case has made it clear the trooper’s use of deadly force was justified, considering that he had just been shot with a round stopped by his ballistic vest. According to WLOS-TV, the shooting happened along Interstate 26 in Asheville, North Carolina, on July 3. Trooper Jeffrey Dunlap had stopped to assist what appeared to be a stranded motorist. The motorist — later identified as Wesley Taylor, 57 — then brandished a gun and shot Dunlap in the chest. Dunlap was able to return fire, killing Taylor.
