WATCH: Army Vet Describes Confronting, Chasing Poway Synagogue Shooter

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday lauded the “act of courage” by Oscar Stewart, 51, of Rancho Bernardo, Calif., who “rushed at the shooting suspect, chasing after the suspect as he fled the synagogue to a vehicle parked nearby” at the Chabad of Poway on Saturday.

“Mr. Stewart caught up to the vehicle as the suspect was about to drive away. While Mr. Stewart was near the vehicle, an off-duty Border Patrol Agent caught up to the vehicle and yelled for Mr. Stewart to get out of the way. The Border Patrol Agent then fired a weapon in the suspect’s direction striking the vehicle as it drove away,” the Sheriff’s Office said. “Mr. Stewart risked his life to stop the shooter and saved lives in the process.”

Here, the Army vet who served in Iraq tells his story to reporters:
