The Sunday morning shooting occurred after a man was stabbed at an entertainment center during an altercation, according to the News-Sentinel.
Medics treated the unidentified man at the scene and were en route to the hospital with the victim's family and friends following close behind when another car sped by the two vehicles opening fire.
All three people in the following car were shot and stopped at a nearby gas station to meet medics. The medic in the ambulance was cut by the shot-out glass.
The three civilians are in stable condition while the medic is in fair condition.

I really wonder what motivates people to become paramedics...
One of the most stressful and most dangerous professions that is rewarded by ridiculous wages.
The public does not fully appreciate how difficult it is to work in EMS. People take for granted the life-saving services provided by our brave caregivers, totally unaware of the difficult conditions encountered by the ambulance crews.
