    Breitbart News reported Brendan Bialy was a senior at the school when he tackled the gunman on March 7, 2019. The attack resulted in eight injuries and one fatality.

    Bialy’s family released a statement after the incident, saying:

    We are deeply saddened for the victims, families, friends, and community on this tragic day. We’d like to commend the immediate response of law enforcement and assure all we are strong with the love of our families, community, friends, and every one sending concern, wishes, and strength. We will persevere.

    Stars and Stripes reports that Bialy is now a Marine.

    Bialy planned on becoming a Marine before the shooting incident occurred. He made clear that the incident actually bolstered his decision: “My thoughts on becoming a Marine were nothing but reinforced after the shooting. What I saw that day was complete and total malevolence, bad overcome by good.”

    In the immediate aftermath of the shooting the Denver Post reported Bialy’s decision to attack the gunman, and quoted him saying, “I don’t like the idea of running and hiding.”

    Glad to see he's doing something more beyond the good he's already done.
    That being said it's nice to see a more positive post on the front page than usual. ;)

    Yup. I'd rather see this proud Marine's face than Warren's.

    Was Hogboy even in the building at the time of the shooting? I thought he was riding his tricycle to the school when he heard about it so he could get the scoop on the story. He calls himself a "victim" but he has set the bar for that term so low that he could be an expert limbo dancer.

    On the other hand, it's good to see that there really are some good young people out there doing well and it makes me proud. Semper Fi young man. You will go far with your can do attitude.
