0

Glen Oakley was shopping at the Foot Locker in Cielo Visa Mall in El Paso, Texas, when he suddenly a “little kid” ran into the store and said there was “an active shooter in Walmart,” and while at first no one listening believed the young kid, people in the store suddenly the heard sounds of the shooting. Oakley heard “pop-pop,” grabbed his gun and ran toward the Walmart.

As a military man, Oakley said that when he hears gunshots, his first though is “boom boom, take cover, save whoever I can.” He is trained to respond to threats, so he jumped into action. Live from the scene, in a video interview with MSNBC, he told his story of the tragic event in which 21-year-old suspected shooter, Patrick Crusius, walked into Walmart with a gun and killed a reported 19 people, and left 40 people injured, numbers which could rise as this report continues to be a developing story.
