What a sad story

T.J. Antell, a Texas gym owner and father of three, was shot dead after he pulled a gun on a man involved in a domestic dispute in a parking lot. The shooter, a 22-year-old soldier, now faces murder charges. (Deirdra O'Regan/The Washington Post)
 
The concealed carry permit holder was trying to intervene in a domestic dispute, trying to disarm the fleeing shooter, trying to do the job ordinarily reserved for police.
 
Instead, he was killed.
 
Just before noon on Monday, 35-year-old T.J. Antell, who had served in the Marines, watched the unfolding of a domestic dispute between a man and a woman outside a Walgreens in Arlington, Texas, authorities said. The man, a soldier stationed at Fort Hood, allegedly fired a gun twice, one bullet burying into the ground and another striking the woman. He then climbed into his truck in the parking lot and attempted to leave when Antell tried to stop him.

Antell, a father of three and CrossFit gym owner, retreated to his vehicle, grabbed his own gun, and approached the shooter, Arlington police said.

Instead of abiding by Antell’s commands to stop, police said the shooter climbed out of his truck and fired his gun again.

The shot hit Antell in the head, reported the Dallas Morning News. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

1.  Domestics are one of the most potentially dangerous calls for service.

2.  Most gun owners aren't shooters.  They think they are, but they have never been tested, so they don't really know.   Ive seen police, some of which have served in the military, lock up in the middle of the chaos.  

3.  Id be willing to bet our good Samaritan has relied on words and physical appearance in the past.  A homicide/attempt homicide in progress (especially with a known shooter) is not the place for these.

Yep, the group I train with has a very strict rule, if you're going to pull it, you're going to fire it. he never should have said a word and just shot the guy. Likely he'd be alive today and with his family.

Another concern is in a situation like that you would just as likely to be shot by an officer, just ask the hostage from the motorcycle shop standoff
