Good Guy With Gun Stops Bad Guy With Knife

posted on September 19, 2016

The apparent terror attack Saturday night in Minnesota, in which a suspected radical jihadist attacked several shoppers with a knife at a St. Cloud mall, was stopped by a good guy with a gun.

According to media reports, the attacker—who was dressed in a private security uniform—asked some victims whether they were Muslim before assaulting them, and referred to Allah during the attacks. 

Thankfully, an off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction was also shopping at the mall at the time. That off-duty officer confronted and killed the suspect, who had already injured eight shoppers in attacks at various locations in the mall.

 

On Sunday, an ISIS-linked news agency said the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic state.”
