I’ve read other reports that the shooter had a semiautomatic rifle and a handgun. Multiple cars on the bridge were hit. Thankfully there was only one person shot before the soldier intervened. The shooter was pinned underneath the soldier’s car. He’s in the hospital in critical condition.
I expect more will be reported later today.
Video: Leavenworth Police chief’s news conference.
A soldier stationed in Kansas saved “countless lives” Wednesday when he hit a man with his car as the man was shooting randomly at people on a bridge near an Army base, a police chief said.
One person was injured by the shooter, according to Leavenworth police Chief Patrick Kitchens. That person, also a soldier, was a random victim, Kitchens said.
Yes, the car was legally owned and he had a license for it.
Is Kansas an open driving state?
Kudos on the soldier for quick thinking and action.
I wanted to mention this news story. Certainly a soldier we can all be proud of.
Weird, I didn’t see this on the CNN website this morning.
I was looking for further developments when I came across
this gem. Full text at link.
Legislation enforcement in Leavenworth, Kansas, spoke back to Centennial Bridge, which spans the Missouri River and connects Kansas and Missouri, in keeping with experiences of pictures fired about 11 a.m., police mentioned.
The suspect had a semiautomatic rifle and a handgun, he mentioned. The soldier rammed the suspect with a automobile.
“He deliberately intervened the use of his automobile to strike and injure the suspect who was once actively capturing,” Kitchens mentioned. “Very most likely numerous lives have been stored through the person who intervened and helped.”
The suspect was once pinned underneath a automobile when first responders arrived, in keeping with the manager. Every other lively obligation provider member was once struck through gunfire, however no different accidents have been reported, Kitchens mentioned.
But was he trained in vehicular assault tactics as part of his MOS?
Was the transmission an automatic?
How many languages did they translate that through to produce that gem?
That is a gem! The site owner appears to put a great deal of effort into translating online news articles into barely intelligible English.
This is what happens when you bring a gun to a car fight.
Reports said the one shooting victim is in critical condition. I hope he fully recovers.
Getting randomly shot driving across a busy bridge is a bizarre way to screw up a guys life.
I’d guess they pirate content and run it through some English->[foreign language]->English translation to avoid copyright claims.
