Chris Cope said it was "like something in a serial killer movie," at
a Memphis, Tenn., shopping center where he manages a financial
services office. According to police, a store employee began
stabbing co-workers after a work dispute. The attacker had already
stabbed eight people and was chasing a ninth when Cope ran to his
truck to retrieve his 9 mm pistol. "[The suspect] just kept saying,
'I'm insane. I wish I was never born,' and all that stuff," Cope
said. But apparently the crazed man valued his life more than he let
on. "When he turned around and saw my pistol, he threw the knife
away, put his hands up and got on the ground," Cope said. "He saw my
gun and that was pretty much it."
