The manager of a Pembroke Pines, Fla., auto parts store shot
two men who tried to rob him, killing one. Corey Dacres was locking
the front door of the shop when two men confronted him. One man,
later identified as Scott Williams, was armed with a pistol. Dacres
told police he then pulled a .40-cal. Beretta and the two men
exchanged gunfire. Williams and his accomplice were both shot in the
leg, according to Pembroke Pines Police Capt. Keith Palant. Dacres
then ran into a nearby restaurant and reported the shooting to an
off-duty police officer. Police found Williams lying on the ground
in the parking lot. His accomplice, Peter Gardner, was arrested at a
local hospital. Gardner told police that he and Williams had waited
outside the store and planned a robbery.
