CCW holder confronts man who just fatally stabbed a woman (VIDEO)

An employee at a food court in Seattle’s busy Center Armory last week sprang into action to help contain a man who had just violently stabbed a woman in public.

The exchange, shown in the above video from King 5 News, shows the employee — concealed carrier Scott Brown — holding his handgun on David Lee Morris just moments after the man allegedly stabbed Gabrielle Maria Garcia in the throat. Brown can be seen maintaining a gap between himself and Morris, holding his attention as the man continues to walk towards him through the crowded urban center. The subject shrugs off pepper spray from a bystander and resumes his interaction with Brown.

Finally, police arrive and authorities move in to taser Morris, taking him into custody.

Garcia, 28, was the mother of Morris’s five-year-old child, over which the two were arguing about custody. She was rushed to an area hospital but later died of her injuries, reports The Seattle Times. She had sought a temporary protection order against Morris last month, who is now under investigation for first-degree murder.

Brown and co-worker Mike Carter had heard the commotion which caused the gun owner and carry permit holder to respond.

“I think about Scott’s heroism,” Carter said. “Do you want someone who just potentially tried to kill his girlfriend and wife — do you want that man’s attention on you?”

Morris is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $2 million bail and, reports KATU, is expected to be formally charged this week.
