Mr CRIMP was a resident of the Aramoana village at the time a young man ran amok with a firearm on 13th November 1990. Attracted by a fire which the gunman had deliberately set alight, Mr CRIMP with a friend went to alert Mr Magnus JAMIESON of the danger. The gunman fired on both men as they attempted to gain entry to Mr JAMIESON's house. The friend left, but Mr CRIMP managed to gain entry to the house to warn Mr Jamieson. Mr CRIMP was followed inside by the gunman who fatally shot both men in the living room. Mr CRIMP's determined action in warning Mr Jamieson of the impending danger, at the cost of his own life, was an exemplary act of bravery.
