(WTVR) — A former Richmond man is being hailed a hero for giving up his own life to save a complete stranger.

David Fleetwood was one of three people killed when a man walked into a town hall meeting in Pennsylvania Monday night and began shooting.

The 62-year-old pushed another woman out of the way of the gunfire before he was shot.

Fleetwood, who spent most of his life working for IBM in Richmond, moved to Pennsylvania after he retired.
