Charles Russell, an Instacart shopper, is being praised for his quick-thinking and heroism in thwarting a potentially devastating mass shooting.
On Wednesday, Russell became suspicious of “clicking sounds” that he witnessed emanating from the Publix’s restroom. Russell alerted the manager of the store to the irregular noises. When police arrived, the would-be attacker was taken by surprise, and his attack was successfully derailed.
The man was discovered to be wearing body armor, in addition to him having with him half-a-dozen guns.
Rico Marley, aged 22 was apprehended by Atlanta PD thanks to Russell’s tip. Countless lives were spared from certain tragedy thanks to Russell’s bravery.
