A man licensed by the state of South Carolina to carry a weapon and defend himself faces the threat of a lawsuit by the family members of an armed teen he shot and killed who was trying to rob a restaurant.
The robber’s family alleges Justin Harrison should have been trained better, and they may even pursue legal action against him for shooting and killing Dante Williams, 19, who was trying to rob a Waffle House in Chesnee, South Carolina, in 2012.
The case again is in the news because authorities recently released a video of the attempted armed robbery.
Fox affiliate WHNS-TV in Greenville, South Carolina, posted the video online and reported that Williams’ family members admit the teen was in the Waffle House to rob it.
Authorities say Harrison, who was in the restaurant, fired several times at Williams, killing him.
