COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — While on patrol seven or eight years ago, Colorado Springs Police Officer Brian Frahm responded to a domestic violence call in which an armed suspect fled police and later shot himself in the chest.
The suspect lived, but Frahm remembers wishing something could have been done by officers on the scene to treat the injury until emergency medical personnel arrived.
