He was able to help other victims escape and even applied a tourniquet to one who was bleeding badly, Seguin city spokeswoman Morgan Ash told WOAI

"He was hit in his hand by some shrapnel, but luckily that was it, and he's okay," Ash said. "He was able to take two women who had been shot, commandeer a vehicle and drive them to the hospital."
