New Details: Portland Mall Shooter Stopped By Concealed Weapons Carrier

"Concealed Weapons carrier Nick Meli was at the Clackamas Town Center in Portland when Jacob Tyler Roberts opened fire on unarmed families in the food court. When 22-year-old, Nick Meli positioned himself behind a pillar, allowing Meli to pull out his own weapon, a Glock 22. Meli never did discharge his weapon because he feared he would miss and kill someone else. "

Oregon Mall Shooting Stopped By Licensed Gun Carrier

"Also largely unreported by the national press was a would-be massacre stopped in a Portland-area mall by an armed citizen with a concealed-carry permit. 22-year-old Nick Meli was carrying his Glock 22 at the Clackamas Town Center, a mall in a town outside of Portland, Oregon, on the same day as the Newtown massacre. The contrast between the unarmed victims in Newtown and the Clackamas shooting was stark. Meli, seeing suspect 22-year-old Jacob Tyler Roberts shooting random shoppers with his AR-15, pulled his gun as Roberts' gun jammed. Meli never even had to fire his gun to stop the shooting spree, which ended in the death of two innocents and the shooter himself. Meli held his fire because of the risk of shooting an innocent person. "As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them," Meli told the local television station. “I know that after he saw me, I think that the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.” --Written by Thomas R.
