Elisha Dicken Greenwood: 22-Year-Old Takes Down Mass Shooter
Elisa Dicken from Greenwood saved multiple lives by shooting the Indianapolis shopping mall shooter.
On July 17, 2022, a 20-year-old man named Jonathan Sapirman began randomly firing in the Greenwood Park Mall. The incident occurred just before the Mall's closing time.
Sapirman left three people lifeless, including a husband and wife, Pedro Pineda and Rosa Mirian Rivera de Pineda, and another man Victor Gomez. All of the victims were from Indianapolis.
Dicken, who had visited the Mall with his girlfriend, noticed Sapirman within a few minutes of the shooting and returned fire with his girlfriend's gun. The 22-year-old reportedly killed the shooter by firing ten rounds from 40 yards.
Elisa has now become a national hero with his action. He risked his own life without having any professional training.
On the other hand, the Greenwood shooting has sent a shockwave in the community. The Mall remained closed on Monday.
