A good dad with a gun ends a potential mass shooting at a McDonald’s:
The unidentified father was leaving the restaurant around 10:45 p.m. on Sunday when the suspect walked into the Birmingham, Alabama fast-food restaurant and started shooting.
The father then opened fire on the gunman, fatally wounding him. The dad and one of his children were also struck and suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Authorities do not know if the gunman was intending to rob the store or targeting a particular person. The father will not be facing charges, WBRC reports.
The motive – robbery, or a gang execution – isn’t clear at the moment to investigators…
And, thanks to one good guy with a gun, it doesn’t have to be.
