A doctor at a CO medical complex grabbed his gun when a gunman entered the facility and took two women hostage. The doctor covered a door leading to the area where the gunman was located as over 50 people escaped the building. The doctor later said he was absolutely prepared to shoot the gunman if he came through the door. Responding police officers did not have any trouble distinguishing the armed citizen assisting in the escape from the gunman (who was shot and killed by police).
