‘It’s the reflex’: Veteran helped disarm gunman in gay club

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — An Army veteran who helped subdue the gunman at a Colorado Springs gay club credits his military training and instincts for helping him disarm the attacker. Rich Fierro told reporters Monday how he grabbed the gunman’s body armor and began beating him. Authorities say Fierro and another man, Thomas James, stopped the gunman after he began spraying bullets at Club Q on Saturday night. The rampage killed five people and injured 17. His daughter’s boyfriend, Raymond Green Vance, was among those killed.
