A mass shooter was shot and killed by an armed citizen with a gun around 6 PM today in an Indiana mall.
Thi incident just happened, so details are still coming in. What we know now is that a man armed with a rifle and several magazines walked into Greenwood Park Mall in Indianapolis, Indiana, around 6 PM this afternoon. He shot and killed three people and wounded two others. What is being described as a “good Samaritan with a handgun” shot and killed the mass shooter. He observed the shooting and then shot then fatally shot the mass shooter.
We will be following this closely and report any more details as they come in. Thankfully, someone there was armed and prepared to take this shooter down before he killed anyone else.
It is unclear if the armed citizen had a concealed carry permit. Indiana just is a constitutional carry state which allows anyone legally allowed to possess a firearm to carry concealed without the need to obtain a concealed carry permit. The new law went into effect on July 1, 2022.
Here is a live video of a feed from the scene:
