Clerk stops career criminal, The Spartanburg Herald-Journal, Spartanburg, S.C. 10/23/12

Thursday, October 25, 2012

A pair of criminals, one of whom was armed with a rifle, entered the Bargain Spot convenience store in Gaffney, S.C. and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk responded by retrieving a handgun and firing at the robbers, striking one and causing both to flee. The wounded criminal only made it a block before he entered a church, pleading for help. The robber was then airlifted to a Spartanburg hospital.

Gaffney Police Chief Richard Turner has made clear the clerk will not face charges, stating, “He was protecting his life and the property.” An investigation revealed that the wounded criminal was released from the Cherokee County Detention Center the same day he was shot, where he was being held on charges that included threatening the life of a public official. Cherokee County Sheriff Steve Muller registered his irritation, noting, “He’s been in and out of jail 13 times since 2007… He should be in prison. It’s unbelievable how many times this has happened. It’s frustrating.” (The Spartanburg Herald-Journal, Spartanburg, S.C. 10/23/12)
