Liberals want you to believe that citizens shouldn’t be armed. But this story that was buried by lamestream media proves otherwise. If it wasn’t for this brave (and armed) lady, this story could have had a more tragic outcome.
CHARLESTON, WV – Authorities in Charleston say that a lawfully armed woman was able to shoot and kill a man reportedly armed with an AR-style rifle who had opened fire on a crowd attending a graduation party this week.
Police say the incident occurred on the evening of May 25th near the Vista View Apartment complex located off the 1300 block of Renaissance Circle.
A man, later identified as Dennis Butler, had apparently been warned by locals in the apartment complex about not speeding while children were outside. After the aforementioned interaction, authorities say Butler briefly left but then returned – armed with an AR-15 style rifle.
Butler reportedly began firing into the crowd attending the graduation party but was quickly put down by a woman who was lawfully armed with a pistol. Numerous witnesses and the armed citizen waited on site for police to respond, cooperating with first responders as they arrived.
Aside from Butler, who succumbed to his sustained wounds, no one else was injured. The unnamed hero in the matter is reportedly not facing any charges, with Charleston Police Department Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett commending the brave woman’s actions, stating, “Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night.”
Local reports show that the decedent, Butler, was certainly no stranger to police, toting a lengthy rap sheet in Kanawha County of roughly 20 arrests (and that’s not even including Butler’s criminal history out of the state of Pennsylvania).
