Not Sure How This Was Missed

The College Station mentally ill shooter may have had to retreat from the policeman that he killed because a civilian was shooting at him.  Shall Not Be Questioned links to this August 17, 2012 KBTX news report:

12:11 PM – First 911 call received. Caller advised that an officer had just been shot and he thought that his girlfriend (Holdsworth) had been shot also. Numerous 911 calls were received including a call reporting that Northcliffe had been shot.
o Holdsworth was shot as she pulled her vehicle into a driveway in the 600 block of Highlands.
o Northcliffe was next to a parked vehicle in the 600 block of Highlands when he was shot.
o Witnesses also told police that the suspect approached Constable Bachmann, after shooting him and removed his duty weapon from his gun belt.
o During this same time period a civilian in the 600 block of Highlands fired 5-6 rounds from a small caliber handgun towards the suspect.
It is at least plausible that the civilian firing at the shooter might have prevented him from moving out to be a threat to others.
