Good Guy with a Gun Kills Mall Shooter on Thanksgiving

A good guy with a gun shot and killed an attacker at an Alabama mall “within seconds” of that attacker shooting and wounding two people.

WVTM reports that the good guy, a Hoover, Alabama, police officer, shot the gunman, who was then pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident occurred at Riverchase Galleria.

Hoover Police Chief Nick Derzis said, “From the time that shooting took place, they engaged and it was safe within seconds that it happened. You don’t see that too often. So very, very proud of that.”

Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato said, “Unfortunately, an individual lost his life. Unfortunately, one of our police officers had to engage that individual. He did so as a professional. He did so at the risk of his own life. But he stepped in to protect thousands, and I’m grateful for that.”

12:34 apparently you cannot grasp the concept that if you're wielding or pointing a gun at a law enforcement officer you could be shot.

Um, you only pay attention to what the Lame Stream Media spoon feeds you. And we already know that you dislike cops. See below.

"In the correction they admitted to shooting a 21-year-old Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford, Jr., whom they now describe as ‘fleeing the shooting scene while brandishing a handgun,’ although ‘he likely did not fire the rounds that injured the 18-year-old victim.’"
