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.
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
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.
