Shooting at back to school giveaway in Titusville: Shooter wounded by bystander, police say

Eric Rogers, Florida Today Published 6:07 p.m. ET Aug. 4, 2018 | Updated 1:58 a.m. ET Aug. 5, 2018

Though it was called "Peace in the City," a back to school giveaway Saturday afternoon in Titusville was anything but.

The gunman at a crowded community rally was critically wounded by a bystander who was lawfully carrying a firearm at the event, Titusville police said in a press release.

The shooting happened just after 5 p.m. at the "Peace in the City" rally and back-to-school event at Isaac Campbell Park in the 700 block of South Street.

The suspect, who police have not identified, got into a fistfight with another person earlier in the day and returned to the park with a gun, police said. The bystander returned fire after the suspect began shooting, striking the suspect in the head.

The suspect was airlifted to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries, officials said. No other injuries were reported.

The bystander has fully cooperated with police and is not expected to face charges, police said.

“We are extremely grateful that nobody else was injured in this incident,” Titusville Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson said in a statement. “This suspect opened fire at a crowded public park, this could have been so much worse."

Dwight Harvey, who was livestreaming a back to school giveaway in Titusville, describes the chaotic scene and frantic relatives as shots were fired. Eric Rogers, Florida Today

Titusville police, assisted by Brevard County Sheriff's deputies, responded about 5:20 p.m. to the Campbell Community Center on South Street, following reports of shots fired in the park behind the center.

The shooting occurred during the "Peace in the City" back-to-school event, where organizers were handing out school supplies. About 150 people, including dozens of children, were still gathered when shots rang out, witnesses told FLORIDA TODAY.

A flyer for the event, posted on social media, proclaimed "A day of fun, no violence!"

Dwight Harvey, of Titusville, who was live-streaming the event when the shooting started, captured the chaotic scene as about 12 shots rang out in rapid succession, sending people scattering.

Children were still leaving the bounce house as the shooter fled the scene, Harvey said. The suspect collapsed moments later in the parking lot of the park.

"There were kids in the path of those bullets. Thank God none of the kids got hit," Harvey said. "To have this happen at an event for the kids, at the 'Peace in the City' rally, is just crazy to me. It's unbelievable. It hurts. It hurts."

The condition of the shooter was unknown late Saturday. The investigation remains active, police said.


Nice find. It’s good to see a citizen stepping up and protecting others.

Just change title of this thread to "Chicago".

Odd that the players aren't kneeling for these crimes.

Could have been a mass shooting? The guy got beat up and went and got his gun to shoot the guy that beat him up.
A couple weeks ago some dude shot and killed another dude for pushing him at a gas station. If his first shot misses and someone shoots him, did they prevent a mass shooting, too?


This ****ing guy...

Never said I didn't. And it wasn't that hard to find. First page maybe? Second? When someone is more concerned with the definition of a mass shooting than kids ending up dead, I kind of remember those things.

A man was arrested at a compound in New Mexico where he had 11 kidnapped kids and was training them to perform school shootings.

The MSM media has sanitized the story to the headline above, but there are some additional facts regarding who the suspect was in terms of his father and ideological motivation.

Scary stuff, glad LE got this guy.

I was actually debating on whether to post it here or in the terrorism thread. Given the sanitized headline I felt this was more appropriate.

All the MSM sites are reporting on it. Just Google it and take your pick of the acronyms you prefer...WaPo, CNN, FOX, CBS...

I find the different headlines interesting. Breitbart & FOX were the most, um, descriptive, shall I say. WaPo's was the most downplayed.

ABC - Man found with 11 children on filthy New Mexico compound was training them to commit school shootings
Breitbart - Son of Imam Linked to WTC Bombing Kept Children in ‘Filthy’ Compound, Allegedly Trained Them to Shoot Up Schools
CBS - Man at filthy New Mexico compound was training kids to commit school shootings
CNN - New Mexico compound suspects were training children for school shootings
FOX - Man arrested at 'extremist Muslim' New Mexico compound was training kids to commit school shootings
HuffPo - Man In New Mexico Compound Trained Kids To Commit School Shootings
NBC - Man arrested at New Mexico compound was allegedly training child to commit school shootings
WaPo - Children were brought to New Mexico compound for weapons training

I honestly don't give a **** if it was a Muslim terrorist or a terrorist of another creed. The part that concerns me is the LE failure that ended up in this poor child's death.

It's more of the omission by several news outlets that are already suspected of this type of bias. But I agree him being Muslim vice Christian or even secular doesn't really matter. That said if there is a jihadist training compound that gets raided I feel those facts are relevant just as if it were a neo-nazi training compound.

Where did LE fail here? It sounds like the boy was kidnapped by his father. What am I missing?
