Harold Hatley, 73, died a hero

As Glen Reynolds at InstaPundit likes to say: A pack, not a herd:
PISMO BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- As a homeless man opened fire in a Denny's restaurant, a patron's decision to try to stop the gunman cost him his life, but allowed others to flee to safety, authorities said Thursday.

According to police, a surveillance video showed Harold Hatley, 73, leaving his seat at the counter and getting in the line of fire, which enabled others to flee.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has the story.
