Guard Who Returned Fire Shaken by Museum Shooting

Holocaust Memorial Museum security guard Harry Weeks says "We'll never be the same again" after the
shooting death of a comrade, allegedly by an 88-year-old white
supremacist.

Weeks, who spent 27 years as a D.C. police officer, is one of
two guards who returned fire after the man shot and killed
39-year-old Stephen T. Johns. Weeks was only 22 the last time he
fired a gun in the line of duty.

When he retired, Weeks thought working security at the museum
would provide a quieter way to make a living. It didn't turn out
that way.

Wackenhut has told Weeks and the other guard (Jason McCuiston)
that they can return to work whenever they're ready. Weeks says
both intend to go back. He says if they didn't, it would signal
that types like von Brunn would "win out."
