Chalk up one for the good guys….

Personal comment:

Don’t forget to click on the link at the bottom of this page, and watch the video…. The only thing I would suggest sentence Samuel Williams to 40 hours of range time, to improve his aim.  If there were more people like him,  “masked men” would think twice about becoming masked men.

Authorities in central Florida say two men were trying to rob an Internet  cafe when a 71-year-old patron began shooting his own gun, wounding the  suspects.

Surveillance video shows two masked men entering the Palms Internet Cafe  around 10 p.m. Friday. The Ocala Star-Banner reports one pointed a gun at  customers while the other swung a baseball bat.

The video shows patron Samuel Williams pulling a handgun and shooting. He  continues firing while the suspects fall over each other as they run out the  door.

Nineteen-year-olds Duwayne Henderson and Davis Dawkins were later arrested  and face attempted armed robbery with a firearm and criminal mischief charges.  They were transported to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

Dawkins had a superficial wound in his left arm, but Henderson was shot in  two places: his left buttock and his right hip.

Both posted bail and were released.

Williams has a concealed weapons permit. Bill Gladson of the Marion County  State Attorney’s Office says the shooting appears justified.

Neither of the men have a criminal record, authorities said

Both men were arrested for attempted robbery with a firearm.
