30-year-old Chris Mintz, a veteran who had served 10 years in the US Army, though unarmed, tried to stop the Oregon shooter yesterday. Mintz was shot seven times. Both his legs were broken, and he was also shot in the abdomen and hands. No vital organs were hit, however, and he is expected to recover.
It’s too bad that Mr. Mintz did not actually get a chance to close with Mercer.
The Daily Mail has lots of Mintz photos.
