Looks like she saved some lives. He was a career criminal with two felony convictions. Also reportedly had a history of charges being dropped in some cases because witnesses declined to testify against him.

Anyway...

''This lady was carrying a lawful firearm, a law-abiding citizen who stopped the threat of probably 20-30 people being killed,” Charleston Police Department chief of detectives Tony Hazelett told reporters on Thursday. “She engaged the threat and stopped it. She didn’t run from the threat. She engaged it, preventing a mass casualty here in Charleston.”

“She's just a member of the community who was carrying her weapon lawfully, and instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,”
Hazelett said. He added, “She did the right thing.

I tried to read it, but it was nothing but popups.

Good to know there are some people still in this country that have brains and courage and know how to use both!!!

She gets a superhero award!!

Just noticed there's already topics about this, sorry.

Just weren't exactly searchable, given the way they were titled.

I know. Some people title them the weirdest things.

Such defensive shootings happen far more often than most people would believe but they never get the press more notorious events receive.
