Thank God he was there. Dad at McDonald’s with kids shoots and kills masked gunman who opened fire.
Birmingham Police responded to the McDonald’s at around 10:45 p.m. Sunday after receiving reports that multiple people had been shot. When an employee opened the door to let a father and his two sons out of the restaurant, a masked man entered. The man then began shooting. Investigators say it is not clear whether he intended to rob the McDonald’s or was targeting someone inside.
The father then opened fire on the gunman, fatally wounding him. The unidentified dad and one of his kids, a minor, were also struck, but do not have life-threatening injuries.
The dad is not facing charges, though the investigation continues.
Self-defense is a human-right. And concealed carry works.
