    [SC] Woman shoots carjacker in Two Notch Wal-Mart parking lot (Hit in the butt again!)

    A man and woman who were shopping at the Wal-Mart on Two Notch Road say a would-be carjacker was not only unsuccessful on Saturday - he is now suffering from a gunshot wound.

    Harold Jeffcoat, 29, is the suspect. The victims say the man who tried to rob them came towards them as they were getting into their car and said, "Man, you know what time it is? Give me the keys!" Then they say Jeffcoat pushed his pistol into the man's stomach.

    That's when the woman acted. She opened the passenger door and got her pistol from the glove box. She says she fired about five shots at the suspect, who ran away.

    Officials say they found Jeffcoat at the Providence NE emergency room. He was there for a gunshot wound to the buttocks.

    Jeffcoat is currently at the detention center on a $200,000 bond in this case, and is expected to face additional charges.

    Alleged Carjacker Gets Shot in Buttocks

    COLUMBIA, S.C. - A man trying to steal a car at gunpoint from a couple ended up being shot himself, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says. Harold Levar Jeffcoat, 29, was arrested Sunday at the hospital where he was being treated for a gunshot wound to the buttocks, Lott said.

    Jeffcoat was shot Saturday night after he stuck a gun into the stomach of a man getting into his car at a Wal-Mart in suburban northeast Richland County and demanded his keys, deputies said.

    A woman in the passenger seat pulled a gun from the glove compartment and fired five shots at Jeffcoat, hitting him once, investigators said.

    Lott is calling the couple heroes. The sheriff said police don't encourage people to go out and "just start shooting," but they do want people to protect themselves.

    Jeffcoat also was wanted for at least nine other armed robberies across Columbia, Lott said.

    That woman is one big pain in the butt for the car-jacker.

    Sorry, couldn't resist. That sheriff has some sense, always a refreshing sight to see. Thankfully no good guys got hurt. Remeber not to ne in white on your nacho trips to WW.

    Good, another piece of garbage where it needs to be. Unfortunately, with slick talking lawyers, he will be out in no time.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    I love this. What was the gun,a j frame 38? She needs a little pratice but she got the job done. The bad guy was real lucky that she didn't connect with all five shots.

    I am glad that things turned out well for the victims, that was a tough call with a gun in her hubbies gut already.

    One question I have is if the only shot that hit the bg was one in the butt, assuming he was running at the time, or maybe it was while he was standing at the door with hubbie close range shot there, just across the auto. Where are the other 4 pieces of lead? Would hate to be parked near the action.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    The police might well not want people to protect themselves, seeing as how they're being upstaged for their ability to protect folks as SHTF. There's a very short list of options for protecting yourself except to come out shooting when faced with a robbery. Good for the "victims" that they resisted and still came out okay. I hope the police and sheriff come to realize how ludicrous hiding the head in the sand truly is.

    It is nice to occasionally see a LEO who is willing to say he wants folks to be able to protect themselves.

    It doesn't happen often enough.

    I'm very glad to read that the sheriff has this much sense. They ARE heroes (well, the woman is, anyway). Too bad she didn't manage to kill this scumbag, though. He's believed responsible for NINE other armed robberies? Who's to say he hasn't murdered anyone, or would not have at some point from now?

    Think of all the would-be victims who will now be spared -- as long as this piece of trash gets a long prison term. The police and the city council should be paying reward money to this couple for their public service.

    Unfortunately I expect the “suspect” to file charges against her for assault with a deadly weapon. As he was shot while running away, it would be extremely difficult for a lawyer to prove that she was acting in self defense.
    These types of incidents go before courts all the time, typically with a not-so-happy ending. If your confronted with a gunman, shoot to the front, and shoot to kill, not to wound. Dead men file no lawsuits and families of criminals make for poor arguments.

    The wife didn't "just start shooting." She was deliberately shooting in defense of her husband's life, as well as her own. The sherriff makes her actions sound random.

    The husband is very lucky he didn't get a new navel.
