An assailant with a gun is threatening someone from a distance. You are behind the assailant. What is the best way to control and disarm him so that he won't harm you and his intended target? I would appreciate it if you could add videos.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

Thanks to all the commenters. I can offer the following solutions: 1 and 2 for the required scenario. The principles as shown consist of side step to the shooting hand. Lowering your body and coming as close as possible to the assailant body. Then catching the gun (depends on the gun size) by both hands for full control of the hand. Afterwards release of the gun and full control of the assailant by hitting while the releasing the gun.
