“Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night”
A good guy with a gun, in this case a woman, saved lives in West Virginia when she shot and fatally wounded 37-year-old Dennis Butler at a party taking place outside an apartment complex. Butler was reportedly randomly firing his rifle at the attendees, miraculously not actually hitting anyone, when he was gunned down by the heroic woman who was legally carrying.
This happened yesterday. A woman with a gun killed a mass shooter armed with an AR-15. I don't see this anywhere in the news….curious pic.twitter.com/mvD34o32tw

While the media did cover the story, it didn’t get much attention because it does not fit the leftist narrative. ‘Legal gun owner shoots and kills would-be black mass shooter’ is not the type of headline they prefer. Therefore, it didn’t get 24/7 coverage from the leftist infotainment sector nor the usual reams of op-eds and propaganda appearances intended to spark widespread outrage, rioting, burning, looting, and murder.
A woman in West Virginia fatally shot a man Wednesday night who had begun firing an AR-15-style rifle into a crowd of dozens.
Charleston Police identified the man as 37-year-old Dennis Butler.
The people were attending a birthday and graduation party outside a Renaissance Circle apartment complex.
. . . . He left but later returned and parked in front of the complex before shooting.
The woman was attending the West Virginia party. She drew a pistol and fired on Butler.
No one attending the party was injured.

Charleston Police say that a woman’s actions on Wednesday night may have prevented a mass casualty event.
According to CPD around 10:45 on Wednesday night officers arrived outside of the Renaissance Circle apartment complex for a report of a shooting. When police got there, they found the gunshot victim, 37-year-old Dennis Butler of Charleston, with multiple gunshot wounds. Butler later died.
Police say they discovered that earlier that night, Butler was approached about speeding in the apartment complex while children were playing. Police say Butler then left the complex and returned a short time later when he parked his vehicle in front of the apartment, pulled out an AR-15 style rifle and started firing at people attending a party.
Police say a bystander attending the party quickly pulled out her pistol and fired at Butler, fatally injuring him.
. . . . “Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” said Lieutenant Tony Hazelett. “She was lawfully carrying a firearm and stopped a threat. There was a graduation party and a party with kids so obviously someone just graduated high school and we could have had a casualty shooting.”
Charleston Police say several witnesses and the person who fired the gun waited on police to get there and fully cooperated with the investigation.
The report continues that no charges have been filed but the matter is still under investigation. Based on what is known at this time, it sounds like this as yet unidentified woman deserves a medal.DONATE
