Chalk up one for the good guys.
Quote:

Williams was seated toward the back of the cafe dressed in a white shirt, shorts and baseball cap.
One of the masked men, identified as Duwayne Henderson, 19, comes in pointing a handgun at customers. The second man, Davis Dawkins, 19, is seen swinging a bat at something off screen, which was later identified as a $1,200 computer screen.
As Henderson turns his back, Williams pulls out a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun, stands from his chair, takes two steps, nearly drops to one knee, and fires two shots at Henderson, who bolts for the front door.
Williams takes several more steps toward the door and continues firing as Henderson and Dawkins fall over one another trying to exit the building. The two eventually run off screen.
Both of the crooks suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds and were later captured. And according to police, Williams — a licensed concealed carry gun owner — won’t face any repercussions.
“Based on what I have seen and what I know at this time, I don’t anticipate filing any charges,” Bill Gladson of the State Attorney’s Office, told Ocala.com.
But he’s not the only one talking. Some of the customers are. And they’re grateful for what Williams did.
“I think he is wonderful. If he wouldn’t have been there, there could have been some innocent people shot,” said Mary Beach.

Saw the footage on the news. He performed nicely. Amazed the first shot wasn't lethal. Just hope he doesn't get zimmermaned.

It's a sin to take pleasure in the misfortune of others...but in this case I'll make an exception...

Good for him. I wonder if they look like they could be obama's son.
On a side note.......anyone still think a 380 is going to stop a bad guy from killing you? If they had chose to shoot back instead of run the old boy could have been in for a real bad time.

Oh Dern...you beat me to the Obama's son comment.

Good job old timer...to bad they got up. Them cute boys will come out of prison a few years from now ready to do society some real damage.

Hope the next armed citizen they meet is not also packing a noisy cricket.

Tack
