Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Meet the Retired Officer Who Died Unloading His Gun Into the Buffalo Shooter But Couldn't Overcome His Armor”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

As a crazed killer began his massacre Saturday at a Buffalo-area supermarket, one man ran forward as everyone else ran away.

Retired Buffalo police officer Aaron Salter, Jr., was working security for the Lockport, New York, store, and fired at Gendron.

It was no use. Gendron was wearing body armor. Unharmed by Salter’s multiple shots, he fired back, killing the former cop,  according to WKBW-TV in Buffalo.

Buffalo Police Department Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia called Salter “beloved,” and “a hero in our eyes.”
