Ever since Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth lost his life at a gas pump recently, deputies can’t help but feel anxious.
“You shouldn’t be afraid to get gas or have your hand on your hip when you get gas,” Deputy Tommi Kelley remarked to CBS Houston affiliate KHOU-TV.
But Kelley wasn’t alone the last time she needed to fill up, the station reports.
“He walked up behind me and said, ‘Ma’m, ma’m,’ so our first reaction is, ‘Yes?”‘ said Kelley.
“I was like, ‘Can I watch you pump your gas,”‘ said McKinley Zoellner. “She asked me why and I said to make sure you’re safe.”
