A Titusville, Florida non-violence event turned into a shootout between a good guy with a gun and a bad guy. Thank goodness the good guy was armed and was able to stop the bad guy who pulled a gun and started shooting at the event full of families with children! A DJ at the event praised the guy who was armed.
This is why being armed can save lives…can you imagine if the man shooting up the event hadn’t been stopped? While the left would have you believe taking away guns is the answer, then only the bad guys would have guns.
A DJ at the event praised the good guy who stopped the bad guy:
Dwight Harvey was standing beneath a shaded pavilion watching children and parents sort through backpacks at a ‘Peace in the City’ cookout when at least a dozen gunshots rattled off nearby.
“I was like, who lit firecrackers? I turned around and just said, ‘Oh no, he’s got a gun, he’s got a gun,’” recalled Harvey, the DJ whose family organized the back-to-school event Saturday at Isaac Campbell Park in Titusville.
“I thought to myself, ‘did this just happen?’ People were taking cover, everybody was scattered,” said Harvey, who told children amid the screams and chaos to run. Sunday, Harvey said he was thankful that a private citizen was in the right place at the right time to quickly end what could have been an even worse situation.
Witnesses said that the gunman, possibly involved in an earlier fistfight at the same event, came back with a gun, firing toward the crowd.
An unidentified vendor with a licensed, concealed weapon, drew his gun on the shooter who was running toward the crowd and rapidly returned fire. Police would only say that the bystander was lawfully carrying his weapon and that he was cooperating. The bystander’s actions could fall under Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law, which give a wide berth to citizens to use deadly force to stop imminent death or bodily harm.
