The only surviving victim of the Thursday Church shooting in Alabama has passed away.
An elderly woman that was taken to a local hospital passed on Friday, according to local reports.
That victim has now been identified as Jane Pounds, 84, who was attending the potluck dinner event at the church at the time of the shooting.
The alleged shooter has finally been identified as Robert Findlay Smith. I have seen conflicting reports regarding Smith’s age, with both 70 and 71 being reported.
Smith allegedly entered the Church while the event was going on and immediately opened fire.
He hit three people, killing one at the scene and two others were rushed to the hospital.
One victim died soon thereafter, but Pounds managed to hang on for another day before passing.
The two previous victims have now been identified as Walter Rainey, 84, and Sarah Yeager, 75.
After Smith pulled out his gun and started firing, he was hit with a chair by another church member, Jim Musgrove, and wrestled to the ground.
Musgrove managed to get the gun away from Smith, clearly saving countless lives in the process.
A mugshot of Smith was also released, showing a battered face and massive black eye from the efforts of Musgrove when he managed to subdue him.
Mr. Musgrove, as local authorities stated, is a true hero, showing courage we don’t often see these days.
Smith does not appear to have been a local community member, so there is an investigation into who he is and why he chose this church.
Unsurprisingly, Joe Biden and Democrats have not expressed any outrage or condolences over the attack.
