The police officer Doug Schroeder became a hero after he shot the gunman who killed three and injured 14 people in Kansas.
He stopped the murderer from shedding more blood in the city.
As previously reported, the murderer, 38-year-old Cedric Larry Ford, opened fire at Excel Industries, at about 5 p.m.
The murderer carried a pistol and an assault rifle, which he used to open a random fire at the crowd when he was in a car.
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback stated that a courageous police officer didn’t wait for backup and decided to enter the building of Excel Industries alone to meet the murderer.
According to preliminary information, four people were killed and 14 were injured after the accident.
A 74-year-old Edna Decker was one of Cedric Ford's first targets. Old woman, who barely survived, stood up to Kansas shooter Cedric Ford before he shot 18 people and killed three of them.
Cedric also had an accomplice – Sarah Hopkins, 28, of Newton. According to a release from the office of U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom of Kansas, she is accused of giving the malefactor the guns used in the shooting.
The information provided by the U.S. Attorney's office reveals that a criminal charge has been filed, claiming Hopkins gave Ford an AK-47 type semi-automatic rifle and a Glock Model 22 .40-caliber handgun. The woman was charged with one count of knowingly transferring a firearm to a convicted felon.
Gov. Sam Brownback expressed his condolences to the people of Hesston, which is 35 miles north of Wichita. He ordered flags to be flown at half-staff on Friday, saying that Hesston Police Chief Doug Shroeder became a hero.
