The officer removed the guard’s belt and and used it as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding until emergency personnel arrived.
"While waiting on EMS, the victim stated he had the firearm in his backpack because he felt unsafe riding the train to work," the officer said in the report.
The guard was alert when he was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. He has since been released from the hospital and is at home resting, Spillane said.
The guard “definitely is going to face a disciplinary hearing,” he said. “They're not supposed to bring (weapons) to work. We have rules and policies against it. He’ll definitely face some administrative discipline, the level of which I'm not positive on at this point.”
