VIDEO: Army Vet Shot 7 Times Trying to Stop Oregon College Shooter

A student and Army veteran who witnesses say charged the shooter at a community college in Oregon is alert and awake at the hospital as he recovers.

Chris Mintz, 30, was shot seven times during the Thursday rampage.

"He ran to the library and pulled the alarms and he was telling people to run, grabbing people, telling them, 'You just have to go,'" witness Hannah Miles told ABC News.

"He actually ran back towards the building where the shooting was and he ran back into the building and I don't know what happened to him," she said of Mintz.

"During the shooting both of his legs were broken and he is going to have to go through a ton of physical therapy," Mintz's cousin Derek Bourgeois wrote on a GoFundMe page, beneath a picture of Mintz and his son.

Imagine what this vet could have done if the school was not a gun free zone and he had a concealed carry permit!

So where is his invite to the white house, oh yeah he only invites people who get arrested for making a clock.

Once again, we are indebted to our military and the brave people that make it what it is. Mr. Mintz is a courageous man who has his military training as second nature. He snapped into action and saved lives. He should be honored time and again after he recovers from his injuries. God bless him, what he did and God bless the men & women of our Armed Forces.
