    Armed Citizen ends Grocery Store Stabbings (REAL)

    The story is at Foxnews.

    Key parts:

    Seven were stabbed, while another suffered heat-related symptoms while being chased, police said. Another person was threatened, resulting in the nine charges against Ingram, The Commercial Appeal reported.

    Ingram, chasing one victim into the store's parking lot, was subdued by Chris Cope, manager of a financial services office in the same small shopping center, Memphis Police Sgt. Vince Higgins said.

    Cope said he grabbed a 9mm semiautomatic pistol from his pickup truck when he saw the attacker chasing the victim "like something in a serial killer movie."

    "When he turned around and saw my pistol, he threw the knife away, put his hands up and got on the ground," Cope told The Associated Press. "He saw my gun and that was pretty much it."
    Of course, the cops don't like the competition:

    Higgins said police were pulling into the parking lot as Cope was confronting Ingram.

    "We commend him," Higgins said. "But we don't encourage people to take that kind of risk. He could have been hurt."
    Not a shot needed to be fired, just confrontation by an alert and armed citizen who cared. Another one goes to the good guys.

    "But we don't encourage people to take that kind of risk. He could have been hurt."

    What about the person getting chased through the parking lot by a lunatic with a knife? Wouldn't he have been "hurt"?

    TBob - we have had several new posts made on this but in fact have a thread running from earlier.

    I will therefore close this one.
