Heroism in Indiana

Copied from Gun Free Zone – This is why we practice:

Police say the “Good Samaritan” who ended a mass shooting at an Indiana mall by killing the gunman saved lives, noting that it only took two minutes from the time the suspect opened fire until when he was shot.

The Good Samaritan, who was identified as Elisjsha Dicken, engaged the gunman within two minutes of the start of the shooting Sunday at Greenwood Park Mall. Police said Dicken approached the gunman from a distance and fired 10 rounds of ammunition at him, striking and killing him before he could retreat to a nearby bathroom.

“His actions were nothing short of heroic,” Ison said. “He engaged the gunman from quite a distance with a handgun. He was very proficient in that, very tactically sound. And as he moved to close in on the suspect, he was also motioning for people to exit behind him.”

This is man is a civilian, no military or law enforcement background, but he knew to respond quickly to a mass shooter, was proficient with his firearm, and took out the shooter without hitting bystanders.

This is a man who clearly practiced with his firearms and invested the time and money to develop his skills on his own.

He hit the shooter at 40-50 yards with a Glock 9mm.

This young man can out shoot most military and law enforcement in the country.

Dicken didn’t just kill an active shooter, he murdered the entire anti-concealed carry hand wringing that untrained civilians with guns make these situations more dangerous.

Fucking legend.

This guy should never have to pay for a drink in a bar ever again.”

No added commentary from me….not necessary.

  1. I agree — the young man was proficient, cool, calm, collected, organized, skillful, humanitarian and …. extremely lucky. I an pleased to, at long last, see an actual example of the good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun. Like you, I think he should never have to pay for a drink again … but seeing how soberly he handed the intense and dangerous confrontation, he probably doesn’t drink all that much anyway. I do hope he has the opportunity for a book deal or a movie at least. I think he deserves the presidential medal that is given to exceptional citizens like him.
