The following is a small part of a larger article on two shootings that took place in Colorado over the last couple of days.
"The gunman at the New Life Church was shot and killed by a church security guard after entering the church's main foyer with high-powered rifle shortly before 1 p.m. and opening fire, Colorado Springs Police Chief Richard Myers said. Four others were wounded, Myers said.
The church's 11 a.m. service had recently ended, and hundreds of people were milling about when the gunman opened fire.
Nearby were parents picking up their children from the nursery.
Police arrived to find that the gunman had been killed by a member of the church's armed security staff, Myers said.
'There was a courageous staff member who probably saved many lives here today,' Myers said.'"
With hundreds of people milling around it is fearful to think what may have happened had this armed security guard not stopped the lethal threat being posed by this individual who was seeking to deprive innocent bystanders of their God given rights to life and liberty!
