We’ve written about the actions of the “good guy with a gun” Eli Dicken — the 22-year-old hero who shot and killed the Greenwood Park Mall mass shooter in Greenwood, Indiana.


More details are emerging that show how God must have been with Dicken in his actions, because they surely were amazing.

The killer went into the bathroom near the food court, preparing for the attack. When he finally came out and started shooting, Dicken saw him and his rifle from 40 yards away and immediately understood what was happening. The shooter shot and killed three people. He injured two. The initial police report was that it took Dicken two minutes to respond to the shooter. But that wasn’t true. The police just corrected that. Dicken neutralized the shooter within 15 seconds of him starting to shoot, an astounding reaction, doubtless saving countless other lives.


Dicken engaged him from about 30 yards away and hit him with eight of ten shots, taking him down and preventing him from retreating into the bathroom. Astounding.

It shows you the difference between one young man who was ready and willing to act and close to 400 who failed to act as they should have in Uvalde.
