This was initially reported as an ‘armed citizen.’ Turns out it was two guys, not just one. They both screamed at him to drop his gun. He refused. He’s now dead. Thankfully, they were armed. Whittle’s name is spelt with an h although the following report doesn’t include it.

Thirty-five-year-old Juan Carlos Nazario and 39-year-old Bryan Wittle are credited with saving lives after they intervened in what police believe was a random attack at a restaurant in Oklahoma on Thursday.
The two men went to their cars to retrieve their firearms after a 28-year-old man opened fire at Louie’s Bar & Grill on Lake Hefner. The attacker wounded three people inside the restaurant before being shot and killed by Nazario and Wittle. The victims are currently receiving medical treatment. Police officials said they are all in good condition and expected to survive.
“A man walked into the Louie’s restaurant and opened fire with a gun,” the Oklahoma City Police Department said in a series of tweets. “Two people were shot. The incident is under investigation. The shooter’s motive is unknown and his identity is not yet confirmed. The victims are expected to survive.”
