CCW'r at Tacoma mall was shot
I guess there was one guy in the mall who was carrying, and did draw and confront the shooter according to some witnesses. Papers said he was shot at least twice in the abdomen from 20 feet, after drawing his weapon and confronting the shooter. Police don't know if he was trying to use it, or if he just brandished it to try and stop the guy. They did say that his gun had not been fired.
He worked at a knife store in the mall, and was taking a deposit to the bank at the time.
Very sad! He talked to police for the first time today, but they are not saying what he told them. Doctors say he may have permanent paralysis from spinal injury.
