COLORADO SPRINGS – A 24-year-old Denver-area man was responsible for weekend shootings at both a Colorado evangelical Christian church and a missionary training center that killed four people, police said on Monday.

Security guard Citizen (- Ed.) Jean Assam, a volunteer, saved many lives at the church, New Life senior pastor Brady Boyd told a televised news conference on Monday. “She’s a real hero,” he said. There were about 7,000 people in the building when the shooting erupted.

“I heard shots fired. There was chaos. The shots were so loud, I thought he was inside. I saw him coming through the doors,” Assam told reporters.

Assam said she then took cover, identified herself to the gunman and “I took him down.” She credited God for her survival because of “the firepower he had compared to what I had.”

Assam has a law enforcement background but had never fired on a suspect while working as a police officer.

Jean Assam is a private Citizen with a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) license.

She is also a hero.

Michelle has more.
