On Thursday an Oklahoma City restaurant experienced a frightening event where a man pulled a gun and shot two people. However, there was a heroic ending to the story.
The suspect who opened fire on the unsuspecting victims at Louie’s Grill & Bar was pursued by an armed bystander after attempting to flee the scene.
Oklahoma City Police Captain Bo Mathews revealed to reporters that the good Samaritan in this story had fatally shot the gunman outside the restaurant.
“Right now, all I know is that it was just a good Samaritan that was there and looks like he took the right measures to be able to put an end to a terrible, terrible incident,” Mathews said.
The motive behind the shooting has not been revealed.
Eye witness Ron Benton said the attacker was around 20-something-years-old and was wearing eye, ear protection like one would at the shooting range.
“He was just a 20-something-year-old kid,” Benton said, “Didn’t look very old. He was wearing ear protection and eye protection that you would have at a shooting range.”
Four people were injured during the shooting.
A woman and a girl were shot after the gunman walked into the busy restaurant. They were hospitalized and are expected to survive, said Mathews, the police captain. The two were celebrating a birthday, CNN affiliate KOCO reported
