Church gunman killed himself, after heroine scored multiple hits
AP is reporting that the Colorado church gunman killed himself with a shotgun after volunteer security guard Jeanne Assam scored multiple hits on him. As I said, she kept her head, a very sound and heroic performance.
It also reports she was fired 10 years ago by the Minneapolis PD for having given false statements in connection with whether she cussed someone during a confrontation. Given the nature of the charge, I suspect it was more like she ticked off the Chief over something, and he found a way to fire her.
Here's a video interview of the lady. For some reason in my player the video freezes but the audio goes on. She definitely handled it like a pro.
One mystery to me: the gunman was reported to be carrying an AK clone and two pistols. If he had a shotgun, too, that would have been around twenty pounds of gunmetal. And reports are that he had a thousand rounds of ammo. A thousand rounds of 7.62x39 weighs in at about 45 pounds, a thousand of 9mm about 35-40. So he's carrying about sixty pounds of guns and ammo?
