Hero Doctor Stops Patient’s Shooting Rampage With His Own Gun


These are the shootings we don’t hear about. Why? Because unlike shootings in “gun-free zones” in which the killer racks up dozens of victims in minutes, these shootings are cut short by an armed citizen, usually with some injuries or one or two dead. A Pennsylvania psychiatrist, Dr. Lee Silverman, shot his own patient with his handgun after the patient murdered a caseworker in front of him.

Guns

Dr. Lee Silverman, a psychiatrist, told police that the patient, identified as Richard Plotts, fatally shot a caseworker at their hospital complex before the doctor pulled out his own gun and exchanged fire with him and wounded him, a prosecutor said Thursday night.

Silverman was grazed in the temple during the gunfight in his office, according to Delaware District Attorney Jack Whelan.

Yeadon Police Chief Donald Molineux said that ‘without a doubt, I believe the doctor saved lives.’

Of course he did. Look at the pictures–if Dr. Silverman had not been armed, there would be wall-to-wall coverage tonight about more “senseless gun violence” amid calls for stricter gun control.
