Yellowstone National Park

(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Yellowstone National Park rangers killed a gunman after he told a woman he was pointing a gun at that he planned to carry out a mass shooting.

The rangers killed the suspect while he fired a semiautomatic rifle at the entrance of a dining facility with around 200 people inside.

Yellowstone officials identified the lone shooter as 28-year-old Samson Lucas Bariah Fussner from Milton, Florida.

The shooting led authorities to close off Canyon Lodge, a complex of hotel rooms, cabins, and dining facilities, some of which remained closed so far. Fussner worked for Xanterra Parks and Resorts, the main concessionaire for such facilities in Yellowstone, park officials said in a statement.

Soon after midnight on Thursday, law enforcement rangers heard that Fussner had held a woman against her will with a gun at a residence in Canyon Village, a lodging area near the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone in the park’s northern end.

The woman reported that Fussner threatened to kill her and others, including carrying out a mass shooting at Fourth of July events outside the park.

Moreover, the rangers found the suspect car but not him. More than 20 law enforcement rangers, including a park special response team, looked for Fussner while organizing to protect park visitors and employees.

After hours of looking for Fussner, authorities encountered Fussner as he approached and fired at a service entrance to the Canyon Lodge dining facility while several of the rangers shot at Fussner, and he died at the scene.

Yellowstone superintendent Cam Sholly said in the statement, “Thanks to the heroic actions of our law enforcement rangers, many lives were saved here last Thursday.”

According to National Park Service policy, law enforcement rangers involved in a shooting are placed on paid administrative leave while the shooting is investigated by the FBI.
