The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office says the off-duty sergeant, who was working security, heard the gunshots and came running. She saw the gunman coming out of the men’s restroom. The Sheriff’s Office says the gunman did not shoot at her, but his gun was drawn so she opened fire.
That off-duty sergeant, identified as Lisa Castellano, fired four times, wounding the gunman. Only one other person was wounded, a 49-year-old man inside the theater, who was hit by one of the gunman’s shots. Both are expected to recover.
Investigators say about 30 rounds were fired. It’s unclear why the break-up with his girlfriend caused the man to go after his co-workers. Investigators haven’t ruled out a love-triangle involving someone else at the restaurant.
With one shot, an off-duty sergeant took down a gunman who attempted to opened fire at a crowded movie theater lobby during a late night showing of “The Hobbit” in San Antonio, 1200 WOAI news reports.

So, another kid tried to kill a bunch of people. Again, this isn't a gun issue, there is something wrong with America's younger generation. So far, nearly all of 2012's shootings and attempted shootings have involved gunmen in their late teens to late twnties. For me, this raises a red flag.
The story also shows that these thugs are cowards. As soon as they realize they'll be met with resistance, they run, just like this guy did. Gun-free zones do NOT work. Law-abiding responsible citizens with guns, does.
My only regret is that the off-duty officer didn't send the little dirtbag to his maker.
