How to use shooter in a sentence?

  1. Gaige Grosskreutz:

    I was shot point blank with a.223 round from the shooter, and I am now missing 90 % of my bicep. This has not been easy emotionally, physically. I'm in constant pain, like excruciating pain that just doesn't go away -- both in my arm, in my heart.

  2. Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin:

    I will not name the shooter, i will not give him the credit he probably sought.

  3. Edward Reinhold:

    CPD returned fire, and neutralized the shooter.

  4. Jerry Boykin:

    The shooter, Floyd Corkins, came into our building armed with a 9 mm pistol, two ammunition clips of 15 rounds in his front pocket, the rounds in the gun, and a box of 50 additional rounds, he also had 15 individually wrapped Chick-fil-A sandwiches. He was not puffing things up when he told the investigators that he intended ‘to kill as many people as [he] could.’ He shot our building manager, Leo Johnson, shattering the major bones of his left arm. Even after taking a bullet, Leo heroically tackled the shooter putting a stop to what would have been a mass murder. Corkins was later convicted of domestic terrorism in Washington, D.C.

  5. Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton:

    Understand there is probably 200 or 300 people in that building while this is going on, this man was not going to stop shooting. The only reason why he stopped shooting is because that officer stopped the shooter.
