An Anderson, S.C., shop owner shot and killed a man who
attacked him with a screwdriver. Owner Leroy Long, his wife, Anne,
and a customer were inside Long's Fishing Center about 8 a.m. when
two men entered the store. One man came around the counter and
lunged at Long, swinging a screwdriver and demanding money. As his
attacker kept approaching Long with the screwdriver, the shop owner
fired eight shots from two guns, hitting the man twice, said Capt.
Dale McCard of the Anderson County Sheriff's Office. "He had one gun
on him and emptied it, and it didn't have any effect on the
individual," McCard said. "He still was coming after him. As he
backed up, [Long] grabbed the second gun that he had on the premises
and used that gun as well."
