Hero of the Waffle House Shooting
The Waffle House shooting refers to an unfortunate situation where a shooter opened fire in a Waffle House, killing four people. The gentleman pictured is named James Shaw Jr., and he single-handedly stopped the shooter by grabbing the barrel of the gun and pulling it out of the shooters hands. In the struggle, he severely burned his hands and scraped up his body, including a bullet wound, but ultimately saved the lives of more intended targets. Shaw claims he’s not a hero and he didn’t even think twice to do it, but that’s what we expect a real hero to say! He then created aÂ GoFundMe pageÂ to assist the victims of the shooting. Within hours, the $15,000 goal was nearly met.
