VIDEO: Parents of two teenagers shot during the Westgate shooting met the first responders who helped save their lives. Glendale Police Officer Destiny Ebersohl and Avondale Firefighter Captain Chris Spire were the first to reach two teenage victims shot by Armando Hernandez Jr. last Wednesday. Alfredo Jaime, 19, was shot in the chest. His best friend whom he was with, Destiny, 16, was shot in the leg by Hernandez. The two were sitting on a bench outside Johnny Rockets when the shooting started. Thursday, the City of Glendale recognized both Officer Ebersohl and Captain Spire for their heroic actions. Ebersohl was one of the first Glendale Police Officers on the scene, immediately coming to the aide of Jaime and Destiny. "My job is to protect and serve. It's gotta be a selfless act," said Officer Ebersohl, who also shared a unique moment when treating 16-year-old Destiny.
