Don’t look now, but another good guy with a gun was in the right place at the right time to stop an active shooter last night. A woman who, by some reports, had been in an earlier confrontation outside a Tulsa shopping center, opened fire on a group of people there Friday evening.
From the Tulsa World:
Tulsa Police responded about 6:30 p.m. Friday to the 5300 block of North Peoria Avenue for a reported shooting. A woman was found dead at the scene, according to a news release. She has not been identified as of Friday night.
A man with a concealed carry permit reportedly told arriving officers that he shot the woman after she started shooting at customers outside the shopping center.
The incident was apparently caught on surveillance video. As for the concealed carrier . . .
“I don’t know that there is going to be an arrest made in this particular case at this point. We are still going to go down and we are going to talk to him and figure out what his version is. Once we get the video and we are able to look at that video, I think it’s going to give us a really good idea of what happened here,” [Detective Jason] White said.
Just remember…that whole “good guy with a gun” thing is just a dangerous American fantasy. Isn’t it?
