"I'm not a hero" Says Man Who Stopped Armed Robbery

Matthew doesn't claim to be a hero, but his actions may have saved the lives of many people that day.

Local news reports:

ANCHORAGE - The line cook at Pizza Athena in Palmer couldn’t have known the decision to carry a firearm on a shopping trip Sunday would affect so many lives.

“You carry not to hope something is going to happen, you carry because something could happen,” said Matthew Willhite, the son of a law enforcement officer who says he’s trained to use his 1911 .45 ACP.

While shopping with family at the 5th Avenue Mall, Willhite came across a security officer wrestling with a man outside one of the stores.

“All of a sudden he’s screaming gun gun gun,” he said retelling the story while making a mammoth sized pizza.
