APD officer who arrested the theater shooter, 'I'm not a hero'

Officer Specialist Jason Oviatt, along with a fellow officer, arrested the shooter near the theater’s rear exit door seven minutes after the first 911 call.

He’s not a fan of the word “hero” and remains extremely impressed by the decision to send the wounded to hospitals via police cars.
