    A man with a cane trips up a young guy running towards him, with the move likely saving the 18-year-old suspect's life, according to the Columbus police.

    Bill, a resident of Columbus, Ohio, US, was waiting outside a library for his granddaughter when he heard police sirens and officers yelling multiple times at a man on the run to drop a gun. The officers had already gained on the fugitive when the Columbus grandfather did what he could to help them nab the armed man. Police have arrested the suspect and recovered a Glock 9 MM pistol with a high capacity extended clip containing 29 rounds from the man. The suspect, who turned out to have a long criminal record, went back to jail. No one was injured in the incident.
