A Coder Wrested a Pistol From the Gunman’s Hands, Preventing Greater Tragedy
Brandon Tsay, 26, is being credited with preventing further violence by subduing the gunman before he could kill more people.
Bless you Brandon. Who knows how many others would have been hurt and killed if you were not right there at that right time?
Incredible. Hopefully the cities of Alhambra and Monterey Park will honor Brandon.
In a professional context he would be called a software engineer. But "computer coder" makes him sound more like an unlikely hero?
Mr. Tsay struggled with the gunman and eventually disarmed him, saving countless lives and averting another tragedy. It was an act that officials roundly praised as heroic. Mr. Tran was found dead Sunday afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot in a van about 30 miles away, according to law enforcement officials.
Why does his identity get distilled down to his job? I hate this world sometimes.
Hope Brandon will be ok in the future, such a fucked up traumatic situation but he did the right thing and saved lives. God bless him!
Proving once again that regular civilians have stopped more mass shooters than police ever have.
What I tend to learn is that a gunman is just as likely to be overtaken by an unarmed person as an armed person.
I don’t like how pro-gun people envision a world of Wild West shootouts in every situation there is a shooter.
I’m not saying a gun in a trained person’s hand wouldn’t have helped. I’m saying it wasn’t absolutely necessary. It would have just been another factor, neither making apprehension more or less likely in an of itself.
Balls of steel was the main factor. Always has been.
Big ups to the guy. Wish coders and old folks at ballrooms didn’t have to worry about getting shot. Normal country
I guarantee this guy never heard about a crime and then came to this sub bragging how if he were there they'd beat the shit out of them. Some people talk, other do.
I don't say this often but this guy is a true definition of a hero. I saw the interview with him and it was moving. He didn't try to act fake humble but just honestly described his fear and moment-to-moment thoughts.
