Police are praising the courage of a concealed-carry permit holder
who helped subdue a gunman in a deadly bank robbery. Chris Chappell
was making a withdrawal when a man opened fire, killing two tellers
and wounding two others. Chappell ran out of the bank and drew his
gun, taking cover behind his SUV.The gunman tried to flee the bank,
but encountered Chappell and ran back inside. At that time two
passing sheriff's deputies noticed the disturbance and turned around
to investigate. The gunman grabbed a hostage and made another
attempt to escape, but he was met by Chappell and the deputies. When
the gunman stumbled, one of the deputies subdued him with a
gunshot."It's certainly commendable; said Jefferson County, Alabama,
Sheriff's Sgt. Randy Christian. "It's obvious he played a key role
in keeping the guy there until we could get there. It's a great
testament to someone willing to take action."
