An Off-duty firefighter may have saved the life of countless people after stopping and arresting a 20 year old man with a rifle, handgun and body armor outside a Missouri Walmart on Thursday.
According to Springfield Police Department, “At approximately 4:10 p.m. Springfield Police Officers were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody. No injuries were reported and no shots were fired. At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives. Any person that was present during this incident and did not speak to a police officer, please contact the Springfield Police Department to file a report and provide further information at (417) 864-1810.”
Bradley Cooper, a citizen journalist who shared exclusive photos of the armend “gun-man” with Gateway Pundit said “Tonight, in my hometown, an armed man was arrested wearing a bulletproof vest outside of a Walmart. IT IS TIME FOR ACTION. Not banning guns, not passing red flag laws, but working on MENTAL HEALTH. Something must be done. He further stated that ” The armed man with a bulletproof vest was reportedly stopped and held at gunpoint by a firefighter until police arrived. Yet all the news will be fixated about is the shooter, and not the firefighter. The narrative MUST change.”
