Hero

Ian Grillot, hiding behind a table, counted the gunshots. When he thought the gunman was out of bullets, he jumped up to pursue the man.

But the [Asswipe] who opened fire inside Austins Bar & Grill about 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday night still had one round left, and he used it to shoot Grillot. The bullet went through the 24-year-old Olathe man’s hand and into his chest.
That takes real guts to charge an armed gunman, even if one thinks that the asswipe's gun may be empty.

If President* Trump really wanted to make a statement about bigotry being evil, he should award Mr. Grillot the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

I read that. "He thought he counted" a full clip? Geeze, even if he had counted right there are too many variables to bank on that.
One hell of a Brave Human. if perhaps ignorant.
"Medal Of Freedom", hell Yes. At least!

Agreed, variables include recognizing type of weapon and caliber, knowing capacity, possibility of aftermarket magazine with baring capacity, one in the chamber with a full magazine or not, actor reloading while exiting, etc...

I suspect the best choice would have been to observe the actor leaving and note vehicle/plate/direction of travel. Also, observing allows time to warn/prepare if he reloads and appears ready to return.
