Police said a woman pulled out her pistol, shooting and killing him.
“This lady was carrying a lawful firearm,” Hazelett said. “A law abiding citizen who stopped the threat of probably 20 or 30 people getting killed. She engaged the threat and stopped it. She didn’t run from the threat, she engaged it. Preventing a mass casualty event here in Charleston.”
Speaking about the woman, Hazelett said, “She’s just a member of the community who was carrying her firearm lawfully, and instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night.”
