Western Psychiatric: Stopping An Active Shooter (Podcast – Season 2, Ballistic Radio Episode 80 – September 21st, 2014)

“…I fire on Schick. I struck him twice in the chest. He goes down, continues to fire. Now at this point the only portions of him that are above the hostage are his firearm and a portion of his head. I fire a third time in a failure drill. This one strikes him through the eye, and effectively ends the gunfight.” – Dan Papale


On this episode of Ballistic Radio, we speak with Dan Papale, the officer who stopped the Western Psychiatric Institute murderer John Schick before he could claim more victims. Dan recalls, in detail, how the events unfolded that day back in March of  2012. As well, Dan answers some questions that are pertinent to the event and the firearms community as a whole.
