After the mass shootings, this past weekend, people are grieving and on edge. There was an off duty firefighter in Springfield, Missouri that was going shopping at the local Walmart. He spotted a young man that had body armor and realized he was armed with an assault rifle and a handgun.
The off duty fireman had a concealed carry permit and held the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived. There usually are two reasons why someone would try to carry out a mass shooting. Reasons being either for publicity to make headlines or and evil act planned to harm innocent people.
There was a photo of the suspect showing him with what looks to be an AR-15 or some variant of that rifle. He is in police custody. The off-duty fireman was credited with stopping the suspect, and holding him at gunpoint until officers arrived.
Springfield Police Department tweeted that an armed man was arrested at the Walmart on W. Republic Road. Police confirmed it was a caucasian man in his early 20s, armed with an assault rifle that was taken into custody.
“His intent was not to cause love or unity to anybody that was in the business. He’s lucky to still be alive honestly,” he told reporters. Investigators will be reviewing both the 20-year-old suspect’s social media profiles and the Walmart security footage.
Thursday evening Lucas said that nobody was injured and no shots were fired.
However, the suspect is still in custody. Officers plan to learn his intentions, as he is believed to have posted a Facebook live video, and they plan to watch it. They give credit where it is due, to the off duty fireman helped put this man in custody and keep people safe. A good decent man with a gun stopped a possible attack, but it’s more than likely the anti-gun wingnuts will keep their opinions and their heads in the sand.
