From the linked article:

An armed bystander shot a man who opened fire on a back-to-school event at a Titusville park after a fistfight, police said.

The shooting occurred at Isaac Campbell Park on South Street shortly after 5:20 p.m. when the shooter, whom police have not identified, returned to the park after a fistfight and began firing, investigators said.

“We are extremely grateful that nobody else was injured in this incident,” said Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson. “This suspect opened fire at a crowded public park, this could have been so much worse."
I should have written "would-be murderer", but it's hardly a stretch to say that the bystander saved many innocent lives. It was a school-related event with many children. I can't imagine being so pedantic, cavalier and obtuse to argue otherwise. But go ahead, if you wish.
