One of those heroes is an Army veteran who was shot seven times while running at the gunman . . .
Mintz told his family he was trying to block a door to keep the gunman out when he was shot.
He says he looked up at the gunman and told him it was his son’s birthday, and that’s when the gunman shot him two more times.
