    Police: Robber killed in SC Waffle House shooting

    The Associated Press
    Posted: Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012

    SPARTANBURG, S.C. The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office says a man attempting to rob a local Waffle House at gunpoint was shot and killed by a customer carrying a concealed weapon.

    Lt. Tony Ivey says two men entered the restaurant early Saturday morning and at least one was carrying a handgun. A customer with a concealed weapons permit drew his gun, and fired when one of the suspects pointed the weapon at him.

    Spartanburg County Coroner Charles Clevenger identified the dead man as Dante Lamont Williams of Roebuck, who turned 19 years old on Saturday.





    The second suspect fled the restaurant after Williams was shot. Ivey says it's not clear if the other person was wounded in the shooting.

    No customers or employees were hurt in the incident.

    Good on ya! I think there was statistic on a self defence show this week that said 75% of crimes are handled by private citizens. The cops show for the police report.

    Cheers,
