A customer at the Waffle House on Chesnee Highway shot and killed a gunman attempting to rob the business early Saturday morning, according to a report from the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded to a report of an armed robbery attempt at the Waffle House restaurant at 2230 Chesnee Highway at 1:13 Saturday morning. They discovered that two men had attempted to rob the business.
Deputies said a customer at the restaurant who was a concealed weapons permit holder attempted to thwart the robbery and hold the suspects at gunpoint with his handgun until authorities arrived. However, one man pointed his gun at the customer, who then shot and killed the suspect, deputies said. The other suspect fled the scene.
The report says no customers or employees were injured during this incident, but it was not known if the second suspect had been hit.
Dante Lamont Williams, 19, of 827 South Edisto River Drive, Roebuck, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Spartanburg County Coroner Charles Clevenger. Williams had been shot in the head and chest.
Anyone who may have information regarding the identity and/or location of the second suspect is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1.888.CRIME.SC.

sad on so many levels...
the Williams family arrests per person has dropped badly because Dante went and got his self kilted so young.
thats a lot of stress on his siblings to bring the average back up.
and congrats to the dude who didn't panic and waste any ammo
though I'm not sure he should have got himself involved, i was not there
and the report rather indicates he acted well
---if it had been in New Jersey, would the good guy have been awarded the $1,000 for 'calling in' a gun?

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
Not sure myself if what he did was smart. Things could have gone totally different. However, they didn't. Well placed shots and bad guy is now taking a dirt nap. 19 years old. Wrong career choice!

I have to think the odds are pretty good running to a CCW at the Waffle House. Sort of like running into a lady at the shoe store.
Good night Dante wherever you are... Don't let the coffin bugs bite!

Once again proof positive that you can fix stupid

I absolutely love this quote from the Sheriff:
“The way you get shot by a concealed weapons permit holder is you point a gun at him,”
Wait it just hit me... isn't this the very same county sheriff that about a month or two back made a public statement that it's time the law abiding citizens arm themselves? Spartanburg, SC? Right?

So was there any charge made against the ccw shooter from the law, family of deceased, waffle house, miscellaneous liberal who was simply offended by the story?
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -
