An Army veteran was shot seven times while trying to save other students during the deadly Oregon community college rampage, according to his aunt.
Chris Mintz “tried to protect some people,” his aunt Sheila Brown told NBC News in a telephone interview. “We were told he did heroic things to protect some people.” She said that Mintz was shot seven times and had been in surgery since the shooting that left 10 dead, including the gunman.
Originally from Randleman, North Carolina, Mintz served about 10 years in the Army. He had just started college, Brown said. He was shot in the back, abdomen and hands, and had two broken legs, she added. [story / another story]
