Armed Citizen Stops Shooting Spree And Saves CopHere is the video:
An armed private citizen assisted a police officer who was pinned down by the gunfire of a madman who had just killed 3 people and could have killed many more. Amazingly the concerned citizen, Vic Stacy, did so by taking a shot of 150+ yards using only a pistol.
The caliber and gun are unknown, but Stacy mentions a “magnum bullet” which could mean a .357 or .44. Stacy landed multiple shots on the shooter and this allowed the police officer to also land shots with his AR-15 while the suspect was distracted. Complete story at the link
The guy is a hero.
It is disgusting that the company who owns the Aurora CO movie theater where the massacre occurred put a "no guns allowed" sign at the entrance and made that venue a death trap.
Also, four shots fired under stress from a handgun - and all four finding their target at over 150 yds?
Man... that's not good, not excellent, but absolutely amazing shooting. Superb combination between an extraordinary marksman and the good old magnum six shooter rounds. This is why I always favor wheel guns over pistols.
