Jeanne Assam, a former policewoman serving as a volunteer security guard, is credited with saving many lives by killing the gunman who invaded her church in Colorado Springs yesterday. The gunman killed two teenage girls and wounded others.
As the gunman fired at Assam, she calmly walked toward him, firing repeatedly. A fellow church member who saw combat in Vietnam and who was wounded by the gunman said it was the bravest thing he'd ever seen.
Assam said simply "I was asking the Holy Spirit to guide me the entire time."
"God was with me. I didn't think for a minute to run away."
