An armed Arizona man is being credited as a “good Samaritan” by police after he shot an active shooter in an Amazon facility parking lot, likely preventing further bloodshed.

.

Police in Chandler, Arizona, say that 29-year-old Jacob Murphy pulled into the employee parking lot of an Amazon facility on Wednesday morning and opened fire after jumping out of his car,” KSAZ-TV reported. . . .

.

An armed Amazon worker on the scene saw what was unfolding, and police say he pulled out his gun and fired at Murphy, wounding him.

.

“He did come to the aid of an individual who was shot by a suspect. So, in that case, I would say he is a good Samaritan,” Sgt. Jason McClimans said in a press conference.

.

According to a statement from police released on Friday, Murphy was found dead in the parking lot when they arrived at the scene, and the investigation has concluded that he died from both the gunshot wound from the armed employee and a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

.

Police say the shooting victim who Murphy first fired on “is still recovering and will survive.”

.

“As previously released, the Chandler Police Department is not investigating the third male, who came to the victim’s aid, as a suspect,” the police department said in a statement. . . .
