Legally armed bystander ends Pennsylvania mall shooting

Authorities say a legally armed bystander has been tagged a hero after helping jeopardize a Pennsylvania mall shooting earlier this week.

A media release from the Lancaster Bureau of Police detailed the incident before the unnamed bystander stepped in.

According to the report, an unidentified 16-year-old male started shooting after engaging in a fight with another person.

The teen pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots.

At that point, the report noted, multiple people became involved in a struggle for the gun.

The legally armed bystander intervened and was able to hit the teen suspect, striking him to the ground.
