Elisjsha Dicken, a 22-year-old concealed carry citizen, eliminated a mass shooter in 15 seconds from 40 yards (120 feet) away. Eight out of his ten shots hit the mass shooter. The leftist, Marxist mainstream media refuses to call Dicken a hero or even acknowledge that the good guy with a guy is a realistic scenario. This incident proves them wrong in their assertion that armed, trained citizens cannot effectively intervene during tragedies. The Second Amendment was given to us by our Founding Fathers for a good reason.
Surveillance footage shows the killer entered the mall shortly before 5 p.m. Sunday evening. He was armed with multiple firearms and spent approximately one hour in a bathroom before he opened fire at patrons in the Greenwood Park mall food court. Police said he exited the bathroom at 5:56:48 and was neutralized by 5:57:03.The Blaze
The local police chief saying the following about Dicken:
“His actions were nothing short of heroic. He engaged the gunman from quite a distance with a handgun. Was very proficient in that, was tactically sound and as he moved to close in on the suspect, he was also motioning for people to exit behind him,” said Greenwood Police Chief Jim Ison. “Many people would have died last night, if not for a responsible armed citizen that took action very quickly within the first two minutes of this shooting,” he added.
It’s uncertain how Dicken votes, but fewer Democrats conceal carry. Regardless of political affiliation, swiftly eliminating mass shooters is making America great again.
Unfortunately, the mass shooter killed three individuals and injured two before being taken out by Dicken. Prayers for them and their families.
