Experts impressed by armed bystander’s response at Greenwood mall shooting

One of the recent mass shootings that took place at Greenwood Mall in Indianapolis was stopped by an armed bystander, Eli Dicken, who took only 15 seconds to neutralize the shooter.
He was really accurate too, police say Dicken fired 10 rounds and an autopsy showed that he hit the suspect eight times from a distance about 40 yards away.
Those numbers along with his quick response time have gun experts very impressed, and he did it without any police or military training. He told police he learned t o shoot from hi grandfather.
One expert said “To have that level of performance with that level of difficulty was just super, super impressive.”
Well his impressive reaction has said to have saved many lives and Eli Dicken is now being hailed as a hero.
And maybe he should start training some of our police… i’m just saying.
