SPARTANBURG, SC (AP) -- Authorities say a customer at a South
Carolina Waffle shop pulled a gun and shot one of two men trying to
rob the restaurant.
The Greenville News reports (http://grnol.co/AkoQDk ) that the
shooting took place early Saturday morning inside a Waffle Shop off
Interstate 85 in Spartanburg County.
Coroner Rusty Clevenger identified the dead man as 19-year-old
Dante Lamont Williams of Roebuck, who was shot in the head and
Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright declined to identity the
customer, citing concerns for his safety.
Authorities said the customer had a concealed weapon permit and tried to hold the two men at gunpoint until officers arrived, but that one suspect began to point his gun at the customer, who then fired shots.
The second robber fled and is being sought by authorities.
