Indiana officials praise a gun owner after he steps into a potential mass shooter one america's haunt hubbard reports a gun owner intervenes in a shootout saving the life of a young man and possibly many others the events

Unfolded tuesday when a 22 year old man with a history of mental health issues allegedly opened fire on two men working at a cemetery in brownsburg indiana killing 36 year old seth robertson as he

Pursued the second cemetery worker one of his bullets hit a vehicle injuring the driver this third man who wishes to remain anonymous immediately stepped in and used his

Legally owned firearm to neutralize the culprit killing him as described by his attorney guy ralford a person suffered from what appears to be a psychiatric breakdown and he

Randomly attacked with a firearm to cemetery workers he killed one after a chase he continued to chase the other one shooting my client looked at that and and realized there was really one thing he

Could do and that is to take action to save an innocent life the good samaritan received quick praise for his courage with brownberg police captain jennifer

Barrett telling reporters his actions not only saved the second victim's life but may have potentially stopped a larger catastrophe from taking place this given the culprit's mental state

And weaponry which ralford says means he could have targeted many other innocent bystanders had his client not intervened in time there's no question that he saved at least one innocent life

And and perhaps multiple because police have said that he had a a drum style magazine in his handgun that still had a couple of dozen rounds in it so who knows how much mayhem could have

Resulted if my client hadn't been the brave hero and good samaritan that he was no charges have been leveled against the unidentified man with local police confirming

They believe he acted in accordance with indiana law which gives residents the right to intervene to protect their own lives or that of another person though bpd also remarked

That decision is ultimately up to the hendricks county prosecutor's office ralford is not concerned about the prospect however reporting confidence in the lawfulness of his client's actions

While also praising the professionalism of local police in handling the incident absolutely not i mean indiana law is very very clear in fact the brownsburg police i really want to applaud them they've been very

Thorough and very professional and they uh thoroughly investigated the facts and the investigation to some degree in terms of the motive or psychiatric background of the shooter

I'm sure some other aspects are continuing but they very quickly the bpd did determine that my client acted completely lawfully and and he was justified under indiana law the attorney also added

He feels privileged to represent the heroic man and feels thankful a 2019 law which ralph himself helped author protects good samaritans like him from frivolous lawsuits
