This didn't make national news for a reason.
Two concealed handgun permit holders stop mass public shooting at auto shop in Rockledge, Florida

Two concealed handgun permit holders stopped an attack at Schlenker Automotive repair shop at 4:30 PM on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The attacker, Robert Bailey, was armed with a .45-caliber handgun and "multiple magazines" and killed one person and severely wounded another in the business' parking lot. Bailey continued shooting inside the shop. From Florida Today:
According to news reports, Bailey had no connection to the auto shop. Indeed, he didn't even own a car. It appears as if Bailey had selected this target simply to kill people.

The criminal was a school employee.

Fired as a bouncer - Apparently started exhibiting signs of some sort of mental disorder.

One man dead and another paralyzed in addition to the criminal being wounded.

You got that right.
If only there was a lesson to be learned here.

What I learned today is that Schlenker Automotive doesn't appear to be a gun free zone and, as such, Mr. Bailey failed to observe the golden rule of selecting soft targets....

Yes, he was reported to be having mental issues. I tend to put all criminals in the "they've got mental issues" category, but selecting soft targets is usually at the top of the criminal's list.
