In a road rage incident that could've ended with several children dead, a dog stepped up and saved his family's life.
In Atlanta, Georgia, an SUV carrying a family was involved in a road rage conflict that ended with the gunman following the family car to a strip mall and opening fire.
The vehicle was full of kids, but the family dog (a German Shepherd), jumped into the line of fire as bullets tore through the vehicle's windows.

None of the family members were injured… but sadly the dog ran from the scene and died behind a building.
This all happened the day after Thanksgiving. So much pointless violence.
Check out the video (below) to hear an eyewitness account of how it all went down.
