Chris “Badger” Thomas RIGHT WING TRIBUNE

An armed bystander shot a man who opened fire at a Florida park filled with over 100 people — including children — for a Saturday back-to-school cookout, officials said.

The Titusville Police Department said in a news release the man was involved in a fistfight with another person at the Issac Campbell Park and left around 5:20 p.m. — only to return with a gun minutes later and start shooting, Fox News reports.
We are extremely grateful that nobody else was injured in this incident. This suspect opened fire at a crowded public park, this could have been so much worse”.  ~ Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson
According to police, two men got into an argument which lead to a fistfight and one man left the Park and shortly after, returned with a firearm and started to open fire. At that point a civilian that was licensed to carry, returned fire and struck the gunman.
The gunman’s firearm was recovered at the scene, he was airlifted to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured during the shootout.


This is a great example of a civilian that is licensed to carry, trains and is very familiar with his firearm which shows the capability to stop a bad guy with a gun and save lives.

This case remains an active investigation by the Titusville Police Department. Detectives have consulted with the State Attorney’s office and no charges are expected against the bystander as his actions were within the law based on the preliminary investigation.
