TUCSON, Ariz. -- Suspected Tucson shooter Jared Lee Loughner was eventually taken down by three people -- a wounded woman who grabbed the magazine as Loughner allegedly tried to reload his gun and two men who tackled him in those few seconds.

A fourth man is being hailed as a hero, as well. Instead of running from the gunfire, Joe Zamudio ran toward it to help those in harm's way, including the people who were wrestling with Loughner.

Zamudio said he will never forget the gunman's face.

"I saw the side of his face and he was cold," Zamudio told 3TV's Kristine Harrington. "He didn't care. There was nothing we could say to him that's going to matter. There's nothing that's going to matter to that kid except a needle in the arm."
