In the clip obtained by CBS New York shows the dad and his three young children sitting on a blue couch inside the dealership’s waiting area just before 7:30 p.m. Suddenly, a man in a dark hoodie walks behind the glass door, pulls out a gun, and opens fire. As people inside are seen ducking for safety, the father quickly grabs his children and pulls them down to the ground, shielding them with his body.

While on the floor, a bullet can been seen flying through the glass right above the family, leaving debris just inches from one child's head. From there, the 39-year-old father is seen jumping on top of them again, pushing them back down to the floor. As NBC News points out, he was doing all of this even despite one of the bullets striking him in the thigh. Thanks to his efforts, the children remained unharmed. The hero dad identified as Anthony Jefferson, was later taken to Jacobi Hospital and was listed in stable condition, the news site reports. Credit: Hollywood Unlock
