Good guy with a CCW saves lives of adults and children in Philadelphia, PA

A person in the Falah Barber Shop on Preston Street in Philadelphia started fighting with another customer. The aggressor, age 40, pulled out a firearm and started shooting at the barbers and customers which included some children.

Upon hearing shots, a man who was outside the barber shop ran in, presented his firearm and hit center mass of the perpetrator with a single shot, stopping the attack. The perp died after being taken to a hospital.

Amazingly, no one else in the barber shop was shot. This good guy with a gun saved the day and many lives.

NBC10 in Philadelphia talked with Yusaf Mack, age 16:

“I heard gunshots so I ducked and I ran… He [the good guy] just shot him and when he was done shooting he ran.”

The man who saved everyone’s lives later turned himself into the police where it was determined he had a permit to carry a concealed firearm. In all likelihood, he will not be charged, citing self-defense.

Once again a good guy with a gun saved lives.

Armed Citizen Saves Policeman’s Life

On Sunday, August 26, 2012, Charles Conner shot and killed two of his neighbors and their dogs with a firearm.  Sergeant Steven Means responded to the call reporting the shooting.  He was fired upon as soon as he left his police car.

Means took cover behind his cruiser and returned fire with his AR-15.  He was unable to get a clear shot on Conner as Conner was behind a tree with a better sight advantage.

A neighbor, Vic Stacy, armed himself and went outside.  He saw Sergeant Means was pinned down and he moved to a spot where he had an opportunity to shoot Conner in the thigh from 165 yards.  Conner was distracted and was shot by Stacy three more times from that distance. Continue reading
