Carnegie Hero Lloyd Muldrow was presented with the Carnegie Medal on Dec. 5, 2023, at an event held at the National Montford Point Marine Association in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Muldrow was at a club in Baltimore, Maryland, on July 4, 2022, when his friend was struck in the face with a handgun. Muldrow was alerted to the scene by club patrons as his friend held onto the assailant’s arm. Without withdrawing his own concealed handgun, Muldrow approached, struck the assailant in the face, and forced the assailant to the floor with help from his friend. As police shortly responded and witnesses informed them that the assailant was armed, officers found Muldrow and his friend restraining the assailant on the ground.
Sam Shumate, from the office of Sen. Ted Budd, and Cody Brown, from the office of Rep. Gregory Murphy, presented the medal to Muldrow in the company of fellow veterans.
