We are taking things into our own hands and saving lives in the process. A woman acted fast when a man with an AR 15 tried to open fi’re on a crowd at a party.
According to The Daily Mail A woman ‘saved lives’ when she sho’t a man who opened fi’re on a crowd of people with a semi-automatic ri’fle.
The woman, who has not been named, had been at a birthday party in the city of Charleston, West Virginia, when Dennis Butler began shoo’ting at the group of around 40 people.
Police say 37-year-old Butler, who has an extensive crim’inal history, used an AR-15-type rifle in the incident, and was ki’lled when the woman fi’red back at him.
Spokesman Tony Hazelett said the woman will not be char’ged, and that she most likely ‘saved several lives’ by fir’ing back. He said: ‘She’s just a member of the community who was carrying her wea’pon lawfully.
And instead of running from the thre’at she engaged with the threat and saved several lives.’
No one else was inju’red in the shoo’ting, which took place late on Wednesday, May 25 near the Vista View Apartment Complex on the northeast side of Charleston.
Speaking at a press conference, Mr Hazelett said the incident appeared to have stemmed from Butler being told to slow down while driving through an area where children were playing at the party.
He said the felon left the complex, before coming back later with an AR-15 style semi-automatic ri’fle and began fir’ing into the crowd.
The woman, who was attending the party, drew her own wea’pon and sho’t back, ki’lling him, WCHS Eyewitness News reports.
The news site reports that Butler had frequently been arrested in West Virginia, with char’ges often dismissed when witnesses failed to appear.
