Armed citizen stops the Texas shooter
Mayhem occurred again yesterday in a small Texas Baptist Church. An armed gunman entered the sanctuary of God and began shooting. In the end 27 dead and dozens others injured. In a senseless act of cowardice a twenty something year old white male had ended innocent lives.
Thank God for the second amendment because a neighbor also had a shotgun and chased the coward and through suicide or a bullet from the armed citizen his life was ended.
Armed citizen stopped the Texas church shooter. As Democrats are already racing to microphones to call for gun control thank God the second amendment stopped this psycho.
Freeman Martin, a major in the Texas Rangers and a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, says the suspect dropped his rifle and fled after being confronted by a local man who had grabbed his rifle.
Freeman provided a timeline of the tragedy in a press briefing Sunday evening.
“At approximately 11:20 this morning a suspect was seen at a Valero gas station in Sutherland Springs, Texas,” Martin said. “He was dressed in all black. That suspect crossed the street to the church, exited his vehicle and began firing at the church.”
“That suspect then moved to the right side of the church and then continued to fire,” he continued. “That suspect entered the church and continued to fire. As he exited the church, a local resident grabbed his rifle and engaged that suspect. The suspect dropped his rifle, which was a Ruger AR assault-type rifle and fled from the church.”
“Our local citizen pursued the suspect at that time,” Freeman went on. “A short time later as law enforcement responded that suspect right at the Wilson/Guadalupe County line crashed out and was found deceased in his vehicle. At this time we don’t know if it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound or if he was shot by the local resident. We know he’s deceased in the vehicle. ”
The suspected killer is being reported as Devin Patrick Kelley. However, Freeman would report, “The suspect has not been completely identified. We believe he’s a young white male, maybe in his early 20s. He was dressed in all black, tactical type gear and was wearing a ballistic vest.”
A local resident and neighbor of the good Samaritan, Kevin Jordan, witnessed his as-yet unnamed neighbor put an end to the rampage, and possibly kill the shooter. Jordan is also a trained medical assistant and tended to the victims.
It is sad to see these tragedies almost weekly. Democrats have already started harping about gun control. But I doubt that the shooters gun was legal. It doesn’t matter if the rescuers gun was legal or not. He stopped the psycho. And evil will find a way to kill. Last weeks terrorist did it with a rented Home Depot truck. The only way to stop evil is to follow God and 27 people died yesterday doing just that.
