You will not hear about a mass shooting in Austin Texas from yesterday. And that’s because the shooting was stopped by a good guy with a gun. And although the major media outlets won’t report it, we will.
Look at this story in contrast with what happened at the FedEx shooting a few days ago. The disgruntled employee at FedEx entered a “gun free zone” and so he faced no resistance when he started shooting at the facility. In this case the foreman, who was also a concealed handgun permit holder, was able to defend himself and stop the shooter.
KXAN reported that a shooting took place at a construction site near the intersection of Rio Grande Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Austin police are not yet releasing the names of the two men involved but said the suspect was recently fired from the construction site and returned with a gun. He opened fire on the site’s foreman, who drew his own gun and returned fire — hitting the suspect.
Police say the foreman has a Concealed Handgun License and was allowed to have the gun with him at work. Police say the suspect had recently returned to the site and had been threatening the foreman, so a police report was filed.
“I was actually driving in the area when I heard what sounded to be gunshots, but with the construction, I just assumed it was related to that,” said Senior Austin Police Officer Veneza Bremner.
Austin-Travis County EMS said both the victims are men, and they were taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge. The foreman suffered a serious injury, while the suspect suffered a potentially life-threatening injury.
A KXAN News crew on the scene — just down the street from the KXAN studios — reported officers could be seen with guns drawn moments after the shooting was reported.
