“He was a man of character,” Connell told the Kansas City Star Friday. “He was a good man. The shooting happened and he went toward it. He ran toward it, saving a bunch of kids. He went toward the guy that was shooting. I’m not surprised at all. I wish he hadn’t, but at the same time I think more people would be dead.”
