A different Aurora shooting, concealed carry saves the day

This happened in April

Off duty cop, attending a church service, pulls his gun and kills the shooter.

Two people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon outside a church in Aurora. The church is located at 10868 East Bethany Drive. The shootings happened around 3 p.m. while a service was ending at the New Destiny Christian Center.

Police said two vehicles ended up in the church parking lot after some sort of argument between the drivers. Police said one vehicle was chasing the other. The man who was being chased got out of his vehicle and entered the church and told people to take cover. A woman came out of the church to see what was happening in the parking lot and got shot. Police said an off-duty officer was at a service and went outside and shot the man who shot the woman.

“We do have two people shot,” Frank Fania with Aurora police said. “An off-duty officer was in the congregation and was involved in the shooting, but he is okay.”Fania said several rounds were fired.

The woman who died was a nurse who is also the mother of Pastor Delano Strahan from the New Destiny Christian Center. The off-duty police officer is Strahan’s cousin. The suspect later died at an area hospital.

  • This is from a couple of months ago, the other shooter was released from prison early, he was there for assaulting police officers and burglary.

    He also had an arrest record from Colorado. Hmmm a convicted felon illegally possessing a gun kills an innocent preacher's mother in the parking lot of her son's parish.

  • Several anti-gun nuts (Feinstein included) reacted in horror in response to statements about wishes for someone with a concealed gun, saying "Then we would have had a shoot-out in the theater". Well, duh.

    • @joe prole They already had a shootout in the theater. What we're talking about is a shoot back. But they'll never get it.

    • @joe prole What?! If someone in the theater were armed, somebody could have been badly hurt... That's just reckless crazy talk.

  • We all need guns, attend a class, and have a license. You turn 18 in the USA, you get a gun.

    • @xaxaxav They might have had him standing on the grass so he'd look taller and more imposing. Sort of a psychological terrorism to anyone thinking about copycating. "I can't deal with a cop that big, better not do anything to piss him off. I feel small facing with the police force."

    • @wellybub I actually saw a sheriff's deputy that big just the other day at the gas station. I'm 6'4", he was at least a foot taller and built like a grizzly bear. And it wasn't the hat this time, he wasn't wearing one.

    • @EMAG-K Yesterday 58 ppl in Demascus were killed in a suicide bombing..tell me how bad guns are again? 58 but I'm sure you got a one size fits all solution right? I'll take my chances with being shot in the face rather than fearing a jihadist or an IED..can you restrict every explosive material? No? Well back of the line for you..

  • This was not conceal carry. Off duty cops can carry anywhere, permit holders cannot carry in or on church grounds.

    • @Billn911
      Not true. You can't carry in a church only if the church prohibits it.
      I don't go where guns are not allowed. as the sign says 'Unarmed victims inside'.
