An unidentified civilian with a concealed-carry permit aided an injured police officer during a terrifying shootout in the Chicago suburbs Thursday night; receiving widespread praise from city officials and the local community.

The confrontation began when police attempted to pull over a suspicious vehicle for a “routine traffic stop” just outside the city limits.

The driver exited the highway before opening fire with an automatic weapon.
