This is an individual that I would love to meet.

“When he came in, I distinctively remember thinking that he is going to have to work for this kill,” Shaw said. “I had a chance to stop him and thankfully I stopped him.”

He added: “I grabbed the gun and kept it down. He had one hand on it. I pulled it away and threw it over the bar.”

Shaw said the suspect, wearing only a green bomber jacket, walked away quickly. Soon after, Shaw flagged down some motorists to call 911 before he was taken to a hospital.

“While I was in hospital, a girl that was there said, ‘You saved my life.’ I didn’t do it to be a hero,” said Shaw, who was later released.

I was watching the news today, and the gentleman said he wasn’t a hero. I disagree. He is a hero, and a great American. God bless you Mr. Shaw!
