The Plymouth County Deputy Sheriff that stopped Arthur DaRosa's deadly attacks in Taunton has been honored at the State House.

Deputy Sheriff James Creed and his wife Laura, a registered nurse, were both recognized for their bravery by Lt. Governor Karyn Polito Friday.

Creed was off-duty when he shot and killed DaRosa, who had stabbed a waitress and killed GNB Voc-Tech teacher George Heath. Both Creed and his wife administered first aid to the victims, including DaRosa.

Lt. Gov. Polito said, "If you can just even imagine for a moment how these two individuals were able to take that moment and turn it into what they did was absolutely incredible."
