Oh yeah, there's something funny about all this:
(#884)"Another interesting piece of information: [daughter] has been doing bible study with a lady who is a police officer and a “sharp
.” Recently she felt led to contact the church and offer her services as a “security guard” because she felt that there was a risk
of some looney doing something crazy
. She was apparantely the one who killed the shooter."
a professionally trained shooter:
(#1732)"Ashley Gibbs was getting into a car with David Harris when they heard the gunshots — a sound like someone kicking ice from the side of a
car, she said. Harris said he saw the gunman. "I was in the military for about three years, and the way he was holding the rifle looked just like
the way we were taught to when I was in the military
," he told NBC's "Today" show."
New Life senior pastor Brady Boyd said security at the church had been beefed up after the early morning shootings in Arvada, but he did not elaborate
and did not take questions.
Yup, they knew something was coming.
Near an entryway in the church, Bourbonnais came upon the gunman and an armed male church security guard who was there with his gun drawn but not
, he said. Bourbonnais said he pleaded with the armed guard to give him his weapon. "Give me your handgun. I've been in combat, and
I'm going to take this guy out," Bourbonnais recalled telling the guard. "He kept yelling, 'Get behind me! Get behind me!' He wouldn't hand me
his weapon, but he wouldn't do anything
." There was an additional armed security guard there, another man, who also didn't fire
Bourbonnais said..... At about that moment, a female guard with a drawn handgun turned a corner and walked toward the gunman and yelled
!" Bourbonnais said. The gunman pointed a handgun
at the woman and fired three shots, Bourbonnais said. She returned fire
and just kept walking toward the gunman pressing off round after round. The female guard fired off about a dozen shots. ... The guard fired as
many as six bullets into him, according to sources.
When a shotgun/assualt rifle goes up against a pistol, it is the pistol that usually loses. So why would the perp suddenly start firing with a
pistol, which apparently jammed up after three shots. Maybe he heard a trigger word ('Surrender') and suddenly froze up.
Two male armed guards don't shoot at the perp and the perp doesn't shoot at them, leaving a female to grab the glory. Hmmm.....
[Somehow, I keep picturing that famous film of Lee Harvey Oswald being led out of the Dallas Jail doorway shortly before Ruby nails him.]
Also interesting that they served a search warrant at his house at the same time the guy started shooting. Which means they new his name, what he
looked like, and probably what he was driving, at least an hour before the shooting. Gee, ya think they might have issued an all points bulletin or
something like that? Don't bet on it.
