Mall victim held fire at ‘kid’
‘I would have had to shoot him in the head,’ man says from hospital bed (Yep, and you'd be walking and healthy. If prosecuted or sued, you might lose your house, job, etc., but those are replaceable.)
Reliving the Tacoma Mall shooting, Brendan “Dan” McKown feels intense pain in his legs and requests more medication Monday at Tacoma General Hospital.
Brendan “Dan” McKown said Monday that he briefly drew his gun on Tacoma Mall shooting suspect Dominick S. Maldonado, but he’s not sure Maldonado saw it.
He could have shot Maldonado, McKown said, but hesitated.
From his bed in Tacoma General Hospital, McKown told The News Tribune what he saw and did during the Nov. 20 mall shootings.
McKown, 38, said he carried a gun and even trained for situations where he could keep innocent people from getting hurt.But the situation in the mall was just too surreal to fully comprehend
, he said: A young man wearing a baseball cap turned backward strolling through the mall in white tennis shoes.
