I was surprised I didn't find this already posted. Maybe I have missed it? Alabama McDonald's gunman killed by armed dad, who is injured in shootout "A brave dad armed with a pistol stopped what could have been a mass shooting Saturday inside an Alabama McDonald's when he took down a masked gunman who had stormed in and opened fire. " Funny thing is....this statistic will go in the general "Killed by gun" category. Even if it was the bad guy who was taken down. I know the employees and patrons were very grateful for this act of heroism.
