'Hero' armed citizen in mall stopped shooter: Police chief | Eastern North Carolina Now | Another example of how armed citizens save lives

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


ABC News.com is reporting:

At least three people were killed and two others were injured in a shooting at an Indianapolis-area shopping mall on Sunday evening, police said.

Multiple people called 911 at around 6:05 p.m. local time to report an active shooter at the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood, Indiana, some 14 miles south of Indianapolis. An unidentified gunman had walked into the mall's food court and opened fire, according to Greenwood Police Chief Jim Ison.

Olivia Harding said she was at the Old Navy in the mall with her mom when they heard four gunshots and initially thought the nearby carousel was breaking down. But then they heard six more shots.

"I told my mom instantly to get down," Harding recalled in an interview with ABC News on Sunday night.

A person who was lawfully armed -- identified as a 22-year-old man from Bartholomew County -- shot and killed the gunman, according to Ison.

"The real hero of the day is the citizen that was lawfully carrying a firearm in that food court and was able to stop that shooter almost as soon as he began," Ison told reporters during a press conference on Sunday night.

Greenwood Mayor Mark Myers also confirmed that the suspect was "shot by an armed individual," whom he called a "good Samaritan."

"This person saved lives tonight," Myers said in a statement late Sunday. "On behalf of the City of Greenwood, I am grateful for his quick action and heroism in this situation."

Here's the rest of the story on the hero who stopped the mall shooting in Indiana. The mall had declared itself a "gun free zone" and the bad guy disobeyed that bringing his gun thinking it would be a turkey shoot where no one could shoot back since it was a "gun free zone". Fortunately, the good guy with a gun either did not see that sign or disregarded it. Either way, he is a hero and stopped the bad guy.

Gun free zones are like a magnet to attract bad people who want to cause trouble. They should be prohibited by law.

Just think if one of those teachers in that elementary school in Texas had a gun. A lot of children would have been saved.

RINOs like Tillis and McConnell are working against our right to keep and bear arms. Thank heaven we are seeing the last of RINO Senator Richard Burr. His replacement, Ted Budd, is a solid conservative and a real Republican, something NC has not had in the US Senate in some time.
