(CNN) – A teenager offered to enjoy the back of a constable’s deputy pumping gas in her patrol car.
It happened near Houston days after the shooting death of Deputy Darren Goforth, who a shooter killed at another nearby gas station.
Deputy Tommi Kelley took a photo with the teen, McKinley Zoellner, and published it to social networks. It has gone viral since she put it online.
“Truthfully, I just felt like it was an idea that we needed to do as a nation,” Zoellner said. “Seeing Deputy Goforth really encouraged me a lot.”
