Courageous Firefighter Who Took Down S.C. Elementary School Shooter Was Armed

posted on October 5, 2016

Contrary to initial press reports, the firefighter who courageously took down the shooter at the Townville Elementary School last week was armed, it was revealed Monday. 

Anderson County, S.C., Sheriff John Skipper said that Jamie Brock, the 30-year volunteer firefighter who was the first to confront the shooter, was carrying a handgun. The shooter allegedly killed his father before shooting two students and a teacher at the school; one of students, 6-year-old Jacob Hall, later died of his injuries. 

Initial reports indicated Brock was not armed. Fire chief Billy McAdams recounted how he and Brock responded to the call for help in a first-person account that did not provide any details as to how Brock was able to subdue the gunman, and officials would not comment on whether or not he used his handgun to take down the murderer.
