Concealed Carry Permit Holder Stops Gunman During Attempted Mass Shooting

On March 22 a man who opened fire on children and adults in a Philadelphia barbershop was shot and killed by a citizen with a concealed carry permit.

The armed citizen had been walking by the barbershop when he heard gunshots. He ran inside and shot the gunman.

According NBC Philadelphia, the incident arose after two men got into a fight in the barbershop. An unnamed 40-year-old man fought with another customer then pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Police said the man fired on “customers and barbers,” and some of those customers were children. As the 40-year-old man was firing, the citizen with a concealed permit entered the barbershop and shot the gunman in the chest.

The 40-year-old was transported to Presbyterian Hospital where he died from his wounds.

No one else was injured thanks to the armed citizen’s intervention. Philadelphia Police Captain Frank Llewellyn said, “He responded and I guess he saved a lot of people in there.”
