VIDEO: Local Police Chief Hailed as Hero for Killing Kansas Active Shooter

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback on Friday said that Hesston Police Chief Doug Schroeder shot and killed Excel active shooter Cedric Ford. Schroeder was among the first on the scene and shot and killed Ford as he was being fired upon.

Three people were killed and 14 injured when a gunman opened fire on employees of Excel Industries, a manufacturer of heavy duty lawn care equipment in Hesston, Kansas Thursday, as well as in two other nearby locations, KAKE TV reports.

Great Job Chief! Now let's just wait for the haters to respond saying this dirt bag was a good Church going man and how the Chief should have shot him in the leg and didn't have to kill him. Again, great job Chief.

Once again we see that solo officer response to an active-shooter event is what works.

God job Chief, very well done.
