‘You aren’t getting by me’: ‘Hero’ student tries to block Oregon gunman from classroom

Citing Tribune Media wire, WHNT reports on the  veteran hero student who blocked the Oregon gunman to protect his classmates: “Tries to block the door to keep the gunman from coming in, gets shot three times, hits the floor, looks up at gunman and says its my son’s birthday today, gets shot two more times,” Chris Mintz’s aunt, Wanda Mintz, told KCPQ.

Family members said both of Mintz’s legs are broken and he will have to relearn to walk, but he is now recovering and expected to survive. No vital organs were hit.

Mintz has been in the military for at least 10 years and was in Oregon, primarily, to raise his son, according to his family.
