A 22-year-old Indiana man is being credited as a hero for stopping a mass shooting inside a local mall food court. 

Greenwood police responded to an active shooter situation at the Greenwood Park Mall on Sunday, with reports of a gunman opening fire on food court patrons. According to law enforcement, the shooter was carrying a Sig Sauer 400 rifle with multiple magazines of ammunition. Two additional weapons were also recovered from the shooter’s backpack. 

According to a News 8 eyewitness, 22-year old Elisjsha Dicken, of Seymour, Indiana, engaged and incapacitated the shooter with a handgun. According to police, this Good Samaritan was legally carrying a concealed firearm in the mall.

Four deaths occurred at the scene, including the shooter. Two were injured, including a 12-year-old. 

The shooter was identified as Jonathan Douglas Sapirman, 20, of Greenwood, Indiana.

Both the mayor and the police department praised the Good Samaritan for having his concealed firearm at the mall. 

“The real hero of the day is the citizen who was lawfully carrying a firearm in that food court and was able to stop this shooter almost as he began”, Police Chief Jim Ison told the press.

Mark Myers, mayor of Greenwood, also expressed gratitude for the Good Samaritan, “…someone we are calling the ‘Good Samaritan’ was able to shoot the assailant and stop further bloodshed. This person saved lives tonight. On behalf of the City of Greenwood, I am grateful for his quick action and heroism in this situation.”

According to USA Today, the shooter attempted to erase evidence. Law enforcement officials executed a search warrant of the suspect’s apartment and discovered the kitchen oven set to a “high temperature”, with a laptop and can of butane inside. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said the device will be sent to the FBI for analysis.

  1. Thank God this young man was prepared to take action in this situation. He deserves a medal from the “ President” more than the ones he has given to certain individuals. As Charleston Heston once said, “ the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun”! Why have I not seen this event covered by the liberal media???
    Guns are not the problem, criminals are and always will be the problem. Being “ soft” on crime will encourage things like this!

  2. Outstanding response by this young man. No military or police training, responded like he had trained in this type situation

  3. This article should be required reading of every congressman AND the President. Maybe, just maybe, it will get into their heads that CRIMINAL’s will always be able to obtain weapons and “we the people” were given the right to carry by our Constitution. Continue to require registration of guns so people “of record” can be traced!

  4. A perfect example proving GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM.
    In this case, a gun contained the problem.
    God bless you Mr. Dicken.

  5. Thank GOD, this young man was carrying his gun, and saved so many people from being seriously injured or even killed.
    This is a perfect reason why, Patriot Americans MUST SAVE AND PROTECT OUR “SECOND AMENDMENT”.
