Church Usher Who Confronted Alleged Nashville Church Shooter Praised as ‘Hero’ for Preventing More Bloodshed

Authorities in Tennessee believe Sunday morning’s mass shooting inside a church that killed one and wounded seven would have been much deadlier if not for the bravery of an usher who brought the masked alleged gunman’s rampage to an end.
