Gunman Starts Shooting at Titusville School Event, Armed Citizen Takes Him Out

 In 2nd Amendment

Around 5:20 p.m. on Saturday, a man with a gun opened fire at a back to school rally in Titusville, Florida, according to Fox. The Isaac Campbell Park “Peace in the City” rally was supposed to be about fun, not violence. A vendor at the cookout who was licensed to carry a firearm immediately pulled his gun and returned fire. No one but the gunman was injured. THAT is how a good guy with a gun takes care of business.

The gunman had reportedly been involved in a fistfight prior to the incident. He left, but returned with a firearm and opened fire into the crowd of about 150 people. His name was not released as of this writing.

Dwight Harvey and his family organized the event in honor of his cousin Butler, who was found murdered in his car. Kids were playing, listening to music, and some were sorting through backpacks with their parents, when shots rang out.

“I was like, who lit firecrackers? I turned around and just said, ‘Oh no, he’s got a gun, he’s got a gun.” Dwight Harvey to Florida Today

Chaos erupted and people and children started running. But one of the vendors at the park event was licensed to carry. He pulled out his gun and returned fire, hitting the suspect in the head. The suspect was airlifted to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

“We are extremely grateful that nobody else was injured in this incident. This suspect opened fire at a crowded public park, this could have been so much worse.” Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson

No charges were expected to be leveled against the bystander due to Florida’s “stand your ground” law.
