Shooter in NY AT&T Store Killed By Off Duty Police Officer

New York Mills, NY – Shortly before 1 p.m. on that Thursday afternoon, Dickan walked into the cellular phone store on Commercial Drive, with a .357 magnum in his hand, and a list in his pocket containing the six names of the AT&T store employees to which he was holding such deep anger, and planned to kill as a result.

Authorities believe Dickan could have been even more successful with his list of six victims, if not for the instantaneous actions of Rome Police Officer Donald J. Moore, who was off-duty, but in the store as a customer at the time of the shooting. “He heard and sees the gun, draws his weapon, and fired,” Lt. Little said of Officer Moore’s reaction.

Man there are some crazy people out there.

Pretty awesome that the armed off duty police officer was able to save at least 6 lives.  See, guns save lives too, it works both ways.

That’s the 2nd story in the past few days that has involved AT&T and guns. The other was the man in Oregon who tried to shoot out the tires of a getaway car of some robbers who stole multiple iPhones.

As someone who has had AT&T service I’m ambivalent that he was killed before he got through his list. No, that’s a terrible thing to say. I’m sorry Mr. Dickan didn’t walk into corporate headquarters with a Calico.

But clearly those sorts of saving actions are unique to police officers. As we all know, police officers are superhumans with unbreakable morals. Us regular plebeians would never save the life of another.

In NYC, the plebes are unable to respond in kind…

I went to high school with the officer that was involved in this and I must say that he is a nice guy. He did turn me in for having a list of IP addresses of the schools computers about a decade ago but I forgave him. The last time that we met was at the Gander Mountain in New Hartford, NY when he was looking for a handgun for his off-duty carry. I do believe that he ended up picking up G27 for his personal carry. I’m not sure if it is the gun that he used to save these people but it did say that it was his personal .40 S&W Glock so it’s a pretty good chance it was. All I can say is good job Donnie everyone from Oneida is proud.
