“I was thinking, I have to get this family out, without getting hit myself. I managed to do one.”
A hero in yesterday’s shooting: ”At the end of the aisle, I ran into a woman. She yelled, ‘My kids!’ and I saw she had two young kids with her,” Jarell Brooks, 19, told ABC News. “I made sure they got in the aisle and pushed behind her to make sure she got out of there.” In his effort to protect this family, Brooks was shot in the leg. He’s out of the hospital now, and is being hailed as a hero for his actions. Meanwhile, the woman he saved, Patricia Legarreta, was hit as well, and taken to the hospital — where her boyfriend proposed. She said yes. (ht @sorta_like_art)

Oh…you mean the same boyfriend who ran out the theater and left her and their children behind? (h/t @karnythia)
