They are talking about it on FoxNews now so it went national. I seen it on 9 News last night and I can't believe they showed the perp get blown away. That was a good shot!

Interesting narration, but it is on YouTube already. At the end it shows the shot in slow motion.

Noticed the media didn't play the actual shot tonight as they announced his death. Couldn't decide if that meant they had a fleeting moment of civility for his family members, or were just short on time in the scripts tonight with other news. Definitely an impressive shot.
