NBC San Diego reports that “an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent who was in the synagogue at the time of the shooting opened fire on the suspect, missing the man but striking his vehicle.”

Poway Mayor Steve Vaus stated: “This shooter was engaged by people in the congregation and those brave people certainly prevented this from being a much worse tragedy.”

President Donald Trump immediately praised the agent on Twitter, writing: “Sincerest THANK YOU to our great Border Patrol Agent who stopped the shooter at the Synagogue in Poway, California. He may have been off duty but his talents for Law Enforcement weren’t!”
