WATCH: New Jersey mom who helped prevent mass shooting in Kentucky on Ellen
Last week, we told you about Koeberle Bull, a New Jersey mother who helped derail a potential school shooting in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Yesterday, Bull and her family were invited on Ellen to tell the amazing story and Ellen surprised them by bringing Josh Satterly, the Kentucky State Trooper who responded to the report, on stage:
A quick refresher of the story because it truly is incredible: Bull received a Facebook message with racist comments about her and her biracial children from a man named Dylan Jarrell, whose Facebook profile listed him as a resident of Lawrenceburg, Ky. Sensing danger, Bull contacted the Kentucky State Police, who caught Jarrell backing out of his driveway wearing a Kevlar vest with a firearm, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, and a detailed plan of attack on local schools. He was arrested on two counts of second-degree “terroristic threatening” and one count of harassing communications.
On Ellen, Officer Satterly thanked Bull on behalf of the Kentucky State Police and invited her and her family to the Lawrenceburg Christmas Parade. Ellen also gave the family a trip to Fiji. Both great gestures for a woman whose actions should be an inspiration to us all.
