A South Carolina police officer rescued a woman who repeatedly mouthed "help me" during a traffic stop as her alleged kidnapper sat beside her.
Officer Kayla Wallace stopped a white Jeep on 28 May after it went through a red light, and approached the woman behind the wheel.
The driver told the officer the man in the passenger seat had abducted her at gunpoint after a shooting.
The suspect, Collins Bates, 29, was arrested.
Ms Wallace, an officer with the North Myrtle Beach Police Department, did not know anything about the shooting before the traffic stop, Officer Pat Wilkinson told the BBC's US media partner CBS News.
