USPSA Shooter, NRA Instructor Shot, Killed Somali Man on Stabbing Rampage
St. Cloud Mayor David Kleis said, “Clearly he is a hero. Officer Falconer was there at the right time and the right place.”
Kleis said the end of the attack and the final confrontation could be seen on video from the Macy’s store. Describing the video, which did not have audio, Kleis said the suspect clearly had a knife in hand, and lunged at Falconer, who fired at him. The suspect fell, then got back up three times before the fatal shot.
“None of us ever want to have to do that,” said St. Cloud Police Chief Wm. Blair Anderson, “but that’s what we’re here for, and Officer Falconer’s actions were swift and direct, and in my opinion appropriate.”
Take a look at Falconer's bio. He appears to be a conscientious, well-trained business owner who wants to train citizens to defend themselves and their families with firearms.
