Fight or flight: it is a response from within the body during any given situation, especially when a person feels pressure or anxiety.
Now, imagine you hear gunfire in a setting where you should not be hearing gunfire. Are you running away?
Tate Myre was different, though. He didn’t take flight.
From Detroit Free Press:
Ross Wingert, who coached Tate [Myre] in football and wrestling, was one of the first to reach the Meijer. In the middle of a chaotic scene, Wingert was told by multiple students that when the gunfire started, Tate ran toward the gunman.
“I was told that everybody in that school was running one way, and Tate was running the other way,” Wingert said.
Toward the shooting.
Hours later, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the horrible news: Tate Myre, 16, had been shot. A sheriff’s deputy placed him in a squad car and attempted to get him to the hospital, but he died en route.
Tate was one of four students who have died from gunshot wounds during Tuesday’s attack.
Myre’s funeral has been scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday at Kensington Church in Lake Orion.
