Albany-- The Albany police officer who shot an armed robber at a Subway Sandwich shop is named Albany Police Officer of the Month.

Corporal Max Parrish was flagged down by a passerby August 27th as two men were inside the North Slappey store robbing it. When the two men came out, armed with pistols, Parrish was waiting. One of the men pointed a gun at Corporal Parrish.

Parrish's commander, Major William Hooper, says, "Without any regard for his own safety really because it was his job to protect people and to act when called upon. He pulled right in without hesitating or waiting for back-up to get there."

Parrish shot 18-year-old Patrick Fairbanks in the chest. He survived his wound. The other robber was caught.
