PHILADELPHIA — When a gunman fired at Officer Mariano Santiago, the slug hit him squarely on the shoulder, next to a tattoo of St. Michael the Archangel.
"My guardian angel was with me that night," Santiago said. "He caught the bullet in his hand."
As he ducked for cover in his cruiser and reached for his gun, two more bullets pierced the driver's headrest.
