SUMMARY: Percy Payne, working a security job at 6th and Brushy, saw two men entering an underground garage and suspected them of trying to steal his car. When he tried to detain them, they attacked him. Payne called 911 twice before police responded. During a Fox 7 interview, his supervisor interrupted, citing a no-interviews policy in uniform, leading to an argument and Payne quitting. Despite initial worry, Payne remained optimistic. After his story circulated on social media, Michael Cargill hired him as a level two security officer, with plans to promote him to level three and armed guard, viewing it as a blessing and opportunity.

A security guard who lost his job during a FOX 7 Austin interview earlier this week has a new job. The security guard was assaulted by two men earlier this week.

Former Secret Service agent speaks on Trump assassination attempt | FOX 7 Austin

SUMMARY: Former President Donald Trump narrowly escaped injury when a gunman opened fire at a rally near Pittsburgh, killing a spectator. The 20-year-old gunman bought 50 rounds of ammo hours prior and fired from a nearby rooftop. The Secret Service faces scrutiny for inadequate preparation and resource allocation, failing to secure the rooftop. Retired agent Robert Cabano criticized both local law enforcement and the Secret Service for their inaction. Despite agents' best efforts during the incident, Cabano fears law enforcement complacency and thin resources might lead to repeated incidents unless public attitudes toward violence change.

The investigation is only beginning following this weekend's assassination attempt on former President Trump at a rally in Pennsylvania. Criticism of the Secret Service is ramping up with mounting questions about how prepared the agency was.
