Armed Hero Stops Active Shooter

1848: Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo between US and Mexico comes into force, giving New Mexico, California and parts of Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Colorado to the US in return for $15 million.

An armed woman saved lives when she fatally shot a man who had opened fire with an AR-15-style rifle into a crowd of partygoers in West Virginia.

Police said that Dennis Butler was killed after he pulled out the rifle and started shooting at the dozens of people gathered for a birthday-graduation party outside of an apartment complex in Charleston.

The woman, one of the attendees, pulled out a pistol and fatally shot Butler, 37. No one else was injured.

“Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett said.

After killing Butler, the woman waited for police to arrive and fully cooperated with the investigation.

No charges will be filed against the woman, Hazelett said.

    More people like her is the answer

      Apparently they were a bad shot and she was not. What, are you disappointed?

      1. Perhaps he was high on drugs or drunk! Then again, he may not have had as much target practice on his gun as did the woman!

    How does one not hit anything at a party with an AR? Something is missing in this article.

      Take a look at his photo (google his name). His kind is not noted for being a good shot. Most low intelligence criminals don’t spend time at the firing range since they aren’t supposed to possess firearms to begin with (he was a felon with an extensive rap sheet). The woman, on the other hand, obviously took gun ownership seriously and knew her abilities. The perp was pissed because people complained about him speeding through an apartment complex, so he returned with a gun and THOUGHT he was going to take revenge – instead KARMA stepped in!

    We should make her the Attorney General and get rid of all this BS once and for all.

  4. Jane says:

    I agree we are not hearing the whole story.

      Jane, you and Eric are obviously members of the democrat/COMMUNIST PARTY USA. Brainwashed into believing that the weapon possessed magical capabilities to the point that everyone around it should’ve been killed. Maybe he just didn’t load it with smart bullets, you know, the ones that never miss. Clearly neither of you know anything about firearms. Keep watching cnn or msnbc, though. Maybe some day they’ll tell the truth about….something….anything….?

    My son-in-law and daughter live in Charleston and while I am not a democrat I also thought this to be somewhat weird that he did not hit anyone. It turns out that the lady saw him coming with the gun and before he could get some good shots in she took him out. I do agree that this needs to happen more so these crazy gun shooters will think twice.
