Not one, but two men ran to their respective cars to grab their guns when a shooter opened fire at an Oklahoma City restaurant Thursday.
Police Capt. Bo Matthews said today that both of those men shot suspect Alexander C. Tilghman on Thursday. Tilghman died as a result of those gunshots.
The two civilians have been identified by police as Juan Carlos Nazario, 35, and Bryan Whittle, 39.
“You are welcome,” Nazario said to local ABC affiliate KOCO after the shooting. “Just did what was trained to do to neutralize the situation.”
Whittle’s family told ABC News that he served in Afghanistan and has been in the National Guard for almost 20 years.
