Gunman Opens Fire At School Event, Concealed Carry Bystander Takes Him Out

An armed man shot a gunman in the head as he opened fire at a school event.

Titusville, FL - A man licensed to carry a firearm took out a gunman at a school peace rally on Saturday after the gunman opened fire.

The incident happened at Isaac Campbell Park just after 5:20 p.m. according to WFTV.

People brought their children out for a "Peace in the City" event that was promised to be a "day of fun, not violence."

The anti-violence climate changed after two people at the event got into a fistfight. One of the people involved left, and then returned with a firearm.

The man opened fire in the park, which was full of children.

A bystander who was licensed to carry a firearm drew his own weapon and shot the gunman in the head.

The gunman was airlifted to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Nobody important was injured.

“We are extremely grateful that nobody else was injured in this incident,” Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson said in a statement released by the city. “This suspect opened fire at a crowded public park, this could have been so much worse."

The detectives consulted with the State Attorney's office and announced that they do not expect to file charges against the legally armed citizen, because his actions appear to be legal.

Just like drivers licenses, concealed carry permits should be honored by every state!!

Great job to the armed citizen, it’s just too bad he will be sued forever and will probably lose everything he has ever worked for. To say nothing of the endless nightmares and the never ending “video” of the event that is going to play forever in his head.

Of course the {D)media will NOT report on this case of a "good guy with a gun". And where is Hogg being thankful no students nor other children were harmed?

they should also be protected from law suits if found that the shooting was justified, just like the good Samaritan laws
