Texas hero reportedly used his own AR to confront the Sutherland Springs shooter

During today’s press conference about the Texas mass shooting, the regional director of the Texas Department of Public Safety indicated that the Texas Good Samaritan, Stephen Willeford, engaged the Sutherland Springs shooter with his own AR:

“He armed himself with an AR assault rifle and engaged the suspect. They engaged in gunfire here at the church. We know that the suspect was shot, when he dropped his assault rifle and jumped in his Ford Expedition and fled the scene.”

Given what we know from other reports, this makes a great deal of sense. After all, Willeford apparently fired with a great deal of precision.
