One person was killed and five others were wounded on May 15, after a gunman opened fire on a church congregation in Laguna Woods, California.
In a press conference live streamed on the Orange County Sheriff’s Facebook page, local authorities said “we believe a group of church goers detained him (the suspect) and hogtied his legs with an extension cord and confiscated at least two weapons from him. He was detained when deputies arrived”.
Orange County Undersheriff Jeff Hallock labelled the congregation as heroes saying, “that group of churchgoers displayed exceptional heroism and bravery in intervening to stop the suspect. They undoubtedly prevented additional injuries and fatalities.”
Hallock said the suspect, aged in his 60’s, was taken into custody. Authorities said the gunman’s motives were unclear. Credit: Orange County Sheriff’s Department via Storyful
