Authorities said Friday a gunman who shot a woman and young girl inside an Oklahoma City restaurant was killed by an armed bystander as he attempted to flee.

Police said the shooter opened fire inside the Louie’s restaurant Thursday and targeted the woman and girl before he left. An armed patron followed him outside.

“A bystander with a pistol confronted the shooter outside the restaurant and fatally shot him,” Oklahoma City police said.

The woman and girl were hospitalized, but expected to survive. Another victim received a minor injury.

Witness Ron Benton was at the restaurant’s bar when he heard gunfire. He told NewsOK the bystander retrieved a gun from his vehicle and shot the perpetrator. He also said the gunman wore protective earphones and glasses.
