An armed pro-life activist who had been protesting outside an abortion clinic in San Antonio, Texas was recently able to stop an active shooter who opened fire on a woman who was entering the facility.
News 4 San Antonio reports that the woman was shot at around 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 15 as she entered the Alamo Women’s Reproductive Services Building.
The suspect had reportedly hid inside of the woman’s car as she drove to the clinic, and opened fire once she exited her vehicle.
The protesters witnessed the shooting and one man opened fire at the suspect with his pistol, possibly injuring him. The gunman nonetheless fled.
“He absolutely saved this young lady’s life,” Chris Ramos of the San Antonio Police Department said of the good Samaritan during a press conference.
“He did something a reasonable person would do and he saw someone engaged in a shooting and he stepped in and intervened and stopped that shooting from occurring.”
The bystander had a concealed carry permit.
When police arrived at the scene, they found several gunshots on the building and heard an account of what had happened from witnesses, including the pro-life protesters.
K9 units and helicopters were deployed to search for the suspect, who was not found. His intended victim was taken to SAPD headquarters for further questioning.
Police did locate his weapon and an item of clothing he had discarded when fleeing the scene. They police the incident was domestic as the gunman knew his intended victim, and witnesses said they had arrived together.
It was in a later update that News 4 San Antonio reported he had been hiding in her trunk on the way to the clinic.
Pro-life is pro-life. This armed and quick-thinking bystander had likely intended to defend the life of the unborn outside that abortion clinic that way, but is no doubt someone with a holistic view on what it means to stand up for life.
Whether it is a woman entering an abortion clinic or her unborn child, every single life is precious, and those who step up to live by these values are often ready and willing to defend every single life they can.
Bravo to this brave hero!
