Jack Wilson, the man who shot the gunman yesterday after he opened fire and killed two at West Freeway Church of Christ, spoke at some length with the press today about what happened during the shooting:
Wilson says that his security staff was already on to the shooter just by the way he was dressed, noting that he had on a fake beard and fake wig with a toboggan on top of it. He said they not only had their eyes on the man, but also had security cameras aimed at him as well.
Wilson said that when he first went to shoot there were people between him and the shooter due to the chaos that had erupted in the room after the gunman’s first shot. But he was able to reposition and take out the gunman with one shot.
Wilson noted that the gunman went down after his one shot and that when he got closer to him, to ensure the gunman never got up again, he was bleeding ‘profusely’ from his head. I had guessed a headshot based on how he went down in the video, and that’s exactly what happened. Wow.
There’s a lot more in the video, as it runs for over 13 minutes, so be sure and watch it. It’s great.
