    An armed security guard prevented a mass murder.

    And praise God.

    ...After several minutes, video showed Duke slowly raising the gun and leveling it at Husfelt, who pleaded "Please don't, please don't."

    Duke shot twice at Husfelt from about 8 feet away and squeezed off several more rounds before district security chief Mike Jones, a former police officer, bolted in. He exchanged gunfire with Duke and wounded him in the leg or side before Duke fatally shot himself, police Sgt. Jeff Becker said. ....

    One account I read was that the Superintendent stted that God stopped the bullets.

    In fact another account showed two bullet holes in the wall behind where the superintendent was sitting.

    I agree, though, that having an armed security guard more than likely prevented follow-on shooting by the bad guy.

    I buy the theory this was "suicide by cop" and he aimed to miss.
