Marine vet killed while saving others during an active shooter incident at a pizza restaurant

The family of a US Marine veteran -who saved lives after a delivery driver began shooting at a South Florida pizzeria on Friday morning- is honoring their lost loved one and hailing him as a hero.

It’s a tale of two pizza employees- and one that shows that both good and evil exist in the same world.

Frank Strahorn, who was 34 at the time of his death last week, did everything he could to get people out of the building when he was hit.

“His big brother instinct kicked in,” said Krystal Strahorn, one the Marine’s three siblings, on Saturday. “He would do this again in a heartbeat if he were given the chance.”

Stahorn’s final actions of selflessness were in response to the selfish and deranged actions of William Carrodus, a delivery driver who approached Giuseppe’s with an AKM-pattern rifle and fired around a dozen rounds at the establishment.

The disgruntled gunman, who had two magazines, placed the rifle on the ground after completing the act.

Carrodus was charged with second-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, and shooting into a building.

According to TC Palm, Strahorn served from 2003 to 2011, and deployed to Japan, Afghanistan and Iraq. Originally from Maryland, Strahorn moved to Florida to be with his family, who relocated while he was in the USMC. He was employed by the pizzeria.
