Easley, South Carolina

From the November 28, 2005 Anderson Independent-Mail:
An armed man who robbed a convenience store in Easley Friday night encountered something he probably didn’t expect— someone else with a gun.

A white man, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 170 to 185 pounds, came into the 123 Q-Mart at 3601 Calhoun Memorial Highway at about 5:25 p.m. He waited until he was the only person in the store, officials said, and then pulled a stocking-type cap over his face and approached the clerk.

Then the suspect pulled a handgun from his waistband and demanded money, according to police. He was given about $100 in cash.

But that wasn’t the end of the transaction. After giving the suspect the money, the clerk pulled out a handgun and shot at the suspect twice. The suspect might have sustained a gunshot wound during the incident, officials said.
