Yuhanna Williams was still clutching his knife when a Rockdale County sheriff's deputy, reporting for work as a security guard at Ingles, came upon the Covington man's body Saturday night in the grocery store's parking lot. Williams' shooter hovered nearby. "This guy tried to rob me and I shot him," Ryan Moore, identified by several media outlets as a 23 year old Georgia Tech graduate, told Deputy Dexter Harris, as reported in the investigator's incident report. Emergency crews were dispatched but arrived too late to save Williams, 30, who was shot in the head. His accomplice escaped on foot and remains at large. Moore, who faces no charges, has emerged as a hero to many. Commenters on the Rockdale News website were largely supportive.
