The hotel security guard that Randall County Sheriff's Deputy, Lt. Tommy Bushek, assisted after being shot in Galveston has died.

According to the Randall County Sheriff's Office, 23-year-old Phillip Mollis, a security guard at a Galveston hotel, died from his injuries after being shot six times on Monday, April 10.

When the shooting happened, Bushek was attending a conference at the hotel. He heard the gunfire and ran toward the area, where he found Mollis suffering from the gunshot wounds. Bushek called for assistance and immediately started performing life-saving procedures on Mollis until other first responders arrived at the scene.

When the incident was first reported to ABC 7 Amarillo on Wednesday, April 12, Mollis was reportedly in critical but stable condition.
