One of the high school students who helped take down and disarm a gunman during a school shooting earlier this year graduated from Marine Corps Recruit Training on Sept. 20.
Brendan Bialy saw a student walk into his 12th grade English class at STEM School Highlands Ranch on Tuesday and pull out a gun. Bialy didn't think. He didn't contemplate his moves.
"I don't like the idea of running and hiding," Bialy told a packed news conference Wednesday afternoon.
Bialy, 18, detailed the horrific sight of an armed classmate looking to unleash terror in his high school classroom, and the split-second decisions that he and two other students made to take down the suspect and prevent further bloodshed.
