Rep. Boebert introduced a House Resolution to honor twenty-two-year-old Elisjsha Dicken, who defended his fellow citizens by stopping an active shooter at the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood, Indiana.

“Elisjsha Dicken is an American hero worthy of recognition and honor. Eli’s act of bravery saved countless lives and inspired millions more. While many career politicians are working to disarm law-abiding citizens like Eli, I’m committed to ensuring that we uphold the Constitutional right to defend one’s self. On behalf of a grateful nation, I’m honored to lead this bill recognizing Eli Dicken, a true American hero.”

Dicken engaged the shooter with a 9mm Glock he was carrying legally under Indiana’s constitutional carry statute. As the shooter attempted to retreat, Dicken pursued him. Prior to Dicken stopping the shooter, three people were killed and others were injured.
