    South Carolina: Clerk shoots two would-be robbery suspects

    The Post and Courier - Clerk shoots two would-be robbery suspects - Charleston SC - postandcourier.com

    WALTERBORO - A convenience store clerk shot and killed one man and wounded another Tuesday night after police say they tried to rob the store.

    The suspects entered the Kangaroo Express at 1111 Sniders Highway at 10:05 p.m. and jammed a Glock pistol into the clerk’s abdomen, according to a Walterboro police report released this morning.

    The clerk told police he grabbed the weapon and wrested it from the suspect, prompting one of the men to punch him in the face. The victim pointed the gun at the suspects and fired multiple times.

    The suspects ran out the back door. As police arrived, Nigel Amir Holmes called 911 on his cell phone and told dispatchers he was in the woods near the store with a gunshot wound.

    Holmes was found at 10:20 p.m. and taken to Colleton Medical Center where he was later flown to the Medical University Hospital with a gunshot wound to his chest.

    Officers followed a blood trail from the store and found the second suspect dead, lying face-down in the woods with a gunshot wound to the chest at 10:49 p.m., according to the police report.

    Colleton County Coroner Rich Harvey identified the man as Octavio Cochran, 22, of Walterboro. An autopsy is being done today.

    The incident report says the gun used in the incident was reported stolen out of Hollywood.

    The case is under investigation.

    I guess stealing the gun worked out. But using it, not so well.

    Two-on-one, without a firearm, forcible disarm, then used it to put down two BG's. That's a fair night's work, right there.

    One person toes up and face down, which should mean: Murder 1, for the surviving perp. Good riddance.

    I was very touched by this part of the story... "An autopsy is being done today." Too bad two weren't being done.
    Dead offenders are much more appealing to Uncle Ted...me too!
    Congrats to the clerk...two on one is a tough scenario.

    This happened not too far from me...I've been to that convenience store a few times over the years. Walterboro has had it's share of trouble lately...home-grown gang bangers.

    Octavio was such a good boy...NOT...check out his myspace page. Unbelievable!

    MySpace - "O" - 22 - Male - ROUNDO , South Carolina - myspace.com/roundo555

    The clerk definitely has a set of stones & had some luck on his side IMO.

    All in all, a happy ending!

    Maybe he should have read the Gangster's Prayer more often?

    Maybe the "Doe Boy" needs a vest?

    The Doe Boy is done like dinner now!!
    Another knuckledragger bites the dust.. Sad for his family these guys can't cut the Thuggery out of their lives.
    I wish these rappers who glorify this type of behavior, and seeemingly give a green light (sending a message in music and behavior)to these streetpunks that its cool and OK, would cut it out, and try to educate them in a positive manner.

    Why waste money on an autopsy? Doesn't make much sense. Can't imagine the murderer or murderer's family (the BG left alive) is paying a damned thing.

    Yeah, they're probably gonna try and sue, lol. You know, saying something like "My boy was such a kind and gentle boy. He would never have done anything like that....."

    I wonder if the clerk had any kind of training? Takes a lot of moxie to face two armed foes and come out on top. Nice result.

    I did check it out, and I guess "Doe Boy" is now "Dead Boy"...a better handle for the little thug.
