Washington – Jewish Community Saddened By The Tragic Death Of Heroic Holocaust Museum Guard


    Security officer Stephen Tyrone JohnsWashington – The security guard involved in today’s shooting attack at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. has died of his wounds.

    According to a source, the guard, who has been identified as 39-year-old Stephen Tyrone Johns, actually stood in the assailant’s line of fire to take at least one bullet before drawing his own firearm to fire back. He apparently did so to block visitors from the assailant’s gun.

    Officer Johns, served on the Museum’s security staff for six years.

    VIN News hails the guard as a true hero—now, sadly, posthumously so.

    To us, the attacker’s choice of venue makes his gunfire a bullet in the heart of every American Jew—and thus, the guard’s heroic move makes him a champion and defender of Jews of the highest order.

    On behalf of the entire American Jewish community, we extend our very deepest and most heartfelt condolences to his family.
