In the wake of the Portland, OR mall shooting, more people are wondering why the shooter ended his spree so quickly (whatever the reason, thankfully, he did).

New information coming out may point to a reason why. A private citizen with a concealed weapons permit confronted the shooter.

The carrier had the shooter in the sights of his Glock 22, but did not take the shot for fear of hitting a bystander standing behind the shooter.

However, after seeing the armed concealed carrier aiming a gun at him, the shooter then took his own life.
