Boydstun Posted July 18, 2022 Report Share Posted July 18, 2022 (edited) From 2000 through 2021, in the US, there were 433 shooter attacks in which one or more shooters killed or attempted to kill multiple unrelated people in a populated place. Most attacks were over before law enforcement arrived. In such cases, 113 times the attacker left the scene, 72 times the attacker committed suicide, 42 times bystanders subdued the attacker, and 22 times bystanders shot the attacker (12 of these bystanders were regular citizens, 7 were security guards, and 3 were off-duty officers). These data are from the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center at Texas State University, as reported in The New York Times 22 June 2022. Yesterday, 17 July 2022, a 22 year-old man who was a passer-by armed with a handgun, courageously entered the heinous shooting episode and shot the shooter dead. Three people were killed by the attacker. This was in Greenwood, south of Indianapolis. Edited July 18, 2022 by Boydstun Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
