More On: Elisjsha Dicken
'Constitutional carry' meant that the 22-year-old man who shot and killed the would-be mass shooter at the Indiana Greenwood Park Mall was armed.
Elisjsha Dicken has been named as the good guy with a gun.
WTHR says the attacker got into the mall around 5 p.m. and went to the bathroom, where he put his cell phone in the toilet and got his guns ready.
At 5:56 p.m., he came out of the bathroom and began firing.
At 5:57 p.m., Dicken started shooting at the attacker, who tried to run back to the bathroom but couldn't make it. He instead fell to the ground.
Dicken had shot ten bullets at the attacker, which hit him an unknown number of times and killed him.
WTHR says that Dickens was carrying a gun without a permit because of the new "Constitutional Carry" law.
There are constitutional carry laws in 25 states. These states are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
WTHR says that Dicken did not have any police or military training in how to use a gun. Instead, "his grandfather taught him how to shoot."
