On Sept. 23, 2021, Stephenville Police Officer Danna Parr and Sgt. Robert Moore responded to a call about an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound.
They provided immediate lifesaving actions by applying a tourniquet, stopping the bleeding, and treating the victim for shock.
"Their heroic actions are exemplary of the top-notch professionalism of the Stephenville Police Department," reads a Facebook post.
