Dallas News says a concealed carry gun owner is being called a hero by Arlington, Texas police for killing a crazed gunman who had just killed bar owner, Cesar Perez. The gun owner saved other lives.
The gunman was 48-year-old James Jones of Grand Prairie and the victim was 37-year-old Cesar Perez of Duncanville. The man who killed Jones has not been identified.
Jones had two loaded guns and two knives and police said he was capable of much greater harm.
The killer, who was black, came into Zona Caliente ranting incoherently, shouting racist insults at someone, and when Perez tried to calm him, Jones killed him in cold blood.
“After he was struck once, the suspect started shooting at the front door,” police spokesman Christopher Cook told the Arlington Voice. “We know people were trying to escape, but we’re not sure if he was just trying to harm others.”
That’s when the hero shot Jones dead, saving other lives. The unidentified Good Samaritan had been dining in the bar with his wife.
The bar was a blue sign business, which means they allow patrons to conceal carry.
