There is an Officer down. It was reported that an Officer exchanged fire with a gunman. The Officer was shot multiple times but managed to kill the gunman.

Prayers are with the Officer and his family.

Sounds like just one gunman and the event is over. Officer is expected to survive. What a hero...

Any officer from a privatized police force as the lowest bidder could have done just as well...

I know this is not the time or the place, but you can not seriously favor a privatized police force?

Best wishes to all.

Shooter is described as a white male approx 30 years old. I'm surprised. Wonder what his motivation(s) was/were?

take this with a grain of salt, because it is just what I read on another forum, which was supposedly found out from witnesses.

But I guess what they are saying is that the shooter was a bald, heavy set man wearing a sleeveless shirt. If thats the case, it seems to be some dumb redneck extremest who the media will use to paint a portrait of all gun owners I have no doubt.

Officer put the POS down like a sick dog.

Thank you officer. Prayers for you, and the others affected.

It's also possible the shooter confused the Shiks with Arabs/Islamists. That's happened in the past because Shiks wear turbans and beards

I do find it "unique" that when its a white male that info is released. Otherwise the race/ethnic of suspect is "clouded"

Prayers to all the victims and their families. Thanks to the LEO who ended it, and to all other LEO's who daily risk finding themselves in the same situation.

Prayers to all the victims. Sikhs are very peaceful people, I know quite a few of them. Maybe they should start considering carrying. Can't wait to hear what Bloomberg will say about this one.

If beforehand someone had seen a man walking around with a gun and called Police, would they be a hero, or a jerk harassing a man for "doing nothing wrong"?

I think that would depend on the laws and the accepted norms of the area. For example, here in Texas it is legal to carry a long gun, and even though it might be legally ok to throw the AR over my shoulder and stroll through the Galleria, I shouldn't be surprised when the PD rolls up to talk to me about it.

Rural New Mexico where open carry was legal and accepted, I never had an issue. Again, stroll through the mall in Las Cruces, and you will be questioned, as it is out of the norm for the area.

Well, knowing the end result as we do now, with 20/20 hind sight, a hero. No question.

I always think of Sikhs as the symbols of India with their wraparound headdress , but they are just the second largest group in India with the Hindi s as majority . But im amazed how they let those facial beard grow that long just like the Hasidics.
Im glad the one officer took out this mad man whoever he is. Hopefully the injured cop recovers .
