When Shooter Opens Fire, Witness Doesn’t Have a Gun to Fight Back — So He Uses His Car Instead

Two regular guys took heroic action to stop a man shooting an AR-15 rifle at a Dollar General store near Buffalo, New York, on Tuesday afternoon — with one of them hopping in his car and running over the suspect to prevent him from firing another round.

What went down?

  • Mark Pinnavaia owns Darylls Car Audio across the street from the Dollar General in Cheektowaga and told WGRZ-TV his employee Chris Kaufmann yelled “shots fired.”
  • Pinnavaia told the station they saw a man “shooting at the front” of the Dollar General.
  • He told WGRZ Kaufmann picked up the phone to call 911.
  • Pinnavaia grabbed his cellphone and keys, and hopped into his Ford Focus in the parking lot so he could gain a good vantage point and be “the best witness that I could possibly be,” the Buffalo News reported.

What did Pinnavaia do when the shooter momentarily put down the rifle?

  • Pinnavaia — who’s a reserve deputy for the Erie County Sheriff’s Office but didn’t have a gun on him when the bullets started flying, the Buffalo News said — saw a chance to stop the shooter.
  • “I proceeded to drive as fast as I possibly could to hit the individual,” he told the paper. “I had full intentions to hit him if that’s what it would take to stop him.”
  • Pinnavaia gunned his car across a side lawn and aimed it right at the shooter, who was running toward a Dollar General back door, WGRZ said.
  • “I caught him as he was jumping up over the roof of my car … there’s actually a foot print on my vehicle where he hit,” Pinnavaia told the station. “At that point he ran, and I jumped out of my vehicle and began a foot pursuit.”
  • Kaufmann joined the chase, and they both ran after the man until police caught up with him, WGRZ said.
  • “I was about five feet behind him when he jumped over a guard rail, and I saw officers with weapons drawn intercept him,” Pinnavaia told the station. “I broke off my pursuit and put my own hands up in the air.”

What did police have to say about the pair?

  • Cheektowaga Police Chief David Zack told WGRZ that Pinnavaia and Kaufmann  are “heroes” who likely prevented deaths: “It’s a miracle I am not reading off the names of deceased.”
  • “There was just incredible bravery on this part of these individuals,” Zack added to the station. “They were not going to be victims. They fought back, and they took this guy out, and they put a stop to it. No words could describe their courage.”

What else did Pinnavaia and Kaufmann say?

  • “This is not about being a hero,” Kaufmann told WGRZ. “This was about doing what you think you need to do and just doing it.”
  • “Some people have it in them to fight first, and I instinctively had that feeling to do whatever I could do,” Pinnavaia told the Buffalo News, adding that there was no fear, only “adrenaline.”

What’s up with the suspect?

  • Police identified the shooter as Travis J. Green, 29, the Buffalo News said.
  • He walked into the Dollar General around 2:30 p.m. and asked for an application, WKBW-TV reported, citing the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.
  • The suspect got angry and left the store, investigators told WKBW, and then fired 20 rounds with an AR-15 rifle at the store from the parking lot. He was wearing body armor and camouflage, the station added.
  • Green — who was in possession of two rifles and 800 rounds of ammunition, police told WGRZ — was arraigned on felonies including attempted murder, assault and criminal use of a firearm and was held without bail.
  • A 53-year-old Cheektowaga man was shot in the shoulder but was released from a hospital and is home with his family and recovering, WKBW-TV reported.Here’s a news report with more information on the suspect:

Muslim Sets Fire To Infidels’ Home While They’re Asleep Trying To Burn Them Alive, But God Has A Better Plan

The world is a dangerous enough place as it is, but it’s made all the more dangerous by extremists that exist in unchecked fashion.

Quite simply, there are abhorrent viewpoints and belief systems that have zero place in civilized society.

Nonetheless, there are immigration advocates that swear up and down that everything will be just fine if we open up all borders and allow folks to come and go as they please.

That line of thinking hasn’t been working out too well over in Europe, but that’s not deterring the advocates even a little bit.

Mad World News shares another frightening example of how well the melting pot that’s so desired by the Left is working out.

During the early morning hours of November 4, a Jewish family awoke to find that they were the targets of a hate crime meant to end their lives.

Having miraculously avoided being burned alive in their sleep, the family notified French authorities that their Parisian home had been set ablaze after their Muslim neighbor allegedly set fire to their front door.

However, the real miracle is how the slumbering family was rescued from their fiery fate.

The Jerusalem Post reports that the Arab neighbor’s allegedly attempted murder plot was thwarted by one of the Muslim world’s worst nightmares — the Jewish family’s loyal dog.

As soon as the arsonist lit the family’s front door on fire, the faithful canine sniffed out the smoke and began relentlessly barking to notify his beloved owners of the impending danger.

If not for this amazing pooch, the family would almost certainly have perished.

While this is a truly incredible story of a family surviving pending doom due to their faithful companion, that doesn’t take away from the fact that hate crimes such as this are on the rise.

The National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism is bringing light to the recent case, adding that it’s just one of many religiously-motivated hate crimes by Muslims against Jews.

“The incident confirms BNVCA’s observation that anti-Semitic acts that began as targeting property belonging to Jews (synagogues, schools, community centers) or as assaults on people on the street have evolved into attacks on Jews inside their own homes,” the group wrote.

It’s certainly poetic justice to have a dog be the one that thwarted such an evil plot, but the dangers remain very real.

From a simplistic point of view, square pegs don’t fit into round holes.

Why are immigration advocates constantly claiming that they do?

Seconds After Church Shooter Opened Fire, One Man Did the Incredible to Send Him TO HELL

After Devin Patrick Kelly opened fire in a Texas church and slaughtered over 20 innocent people, one man stepped up big time.

Johnnie Langendorff is a hero.

Langendorff saw Kelly flee the scene like the coward he was and he proceeded to track him down in his vehicle.

WATCH THIS:

From KSAT:

Langendorff then told [his girlfriend Summer] Caddel the suspect — identified as Devin Patrick Kelley — then got into an SUV and drove away, and the two gave chase.

While on the phone with 911, Langendorff told his girlfriend the chase came to an end near a sharp curve near country roads 307 and 539.

Caddel understood that to mean the Kelley crashed. Moments later law enforcement officers arrived, she said.

UNBELIEVABLE!

And to think, it took a good guy with a gun to take down a bad guy with a gun. Where have we heard that before?

What a sad day.

Keep the deceased and all those affected by this act of cowardice in your prayers.

RIP.
