What clearly would have been a mass public shooting in Louisiana was stopped by multiple armed civilians

Having murdered two people had wounded a couple of others, it is clear that the attacker intended to kill as many people as possible. The quick response by people with concealed handgun permits stopped the attack.

A person entered a gun store and shooting range in a New Orleans suburb and fatally shot two people Saturday, prompting customers and staff to open fire on the shooter, a sheriff said. The shooter also died. . . . Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said the shooter initially struck two people inside, and then several other people . . .

“(Williams) became agitated by the request and pulled his gun out of his pants and started firing. Our armed and trained employees, as well as some armed, permitted customers, returned fire and eliminated the threat. One customer as well as one employee perished in the gun battle. Joshua Williams, the gunman, is also dead.”

Bob D’Angelo, “Gunman, 2 victims identified in Louisiana gun shop shooting,” Cox Media Group National Content Desk, February 21, 2021.
