Armed citizen kills shooter at OKC restaurant

An armed citizen confronted a man who fired shots inside a restaurant and killed him, according to Oklahoma City police.

The shooter opened fire inside the establishment, injuring two people.  As he was fleeing the scene, the armed bystander opened fire, fatally injuring the shooter.


A man walked into Louie’s Grill & Bar and opened fire, striking two people.  As the gunman was fleeing the scene, a bystander armed with a pistol confronted the shooter and fatally shot him outside the restaurant, Oklahoma City Police Captain Bo Mathews told reporters.

“Right now, all I know is that it was just a good Samaritan that was there and looks like he took the right measures to be able to put an end to a terrible, terrible incident,” Mathews said.

The shooter’s motive is not known and his identity has not been confirmed.

Four people were injured during the shooting.

A woman and a girl were shot after the gunman walked into the busy restaurant.  They were hospitalized and are expected to survive, Mathews said.

The mother and daughter were celebrating a birthday when they were injured, CNN affiliate KOCO reported.
