Concealed Gun Permit Owner Stops Criminal Rampage

See what happens when you trust a law-abiding citizen with a gun? He goes and shoots a criminal with it!

GREENVILLE, S.C. Authorities say a 28-year-old South Carolina man has been shot by a neighbor after a rampage that included the stabbing death of his girlfriend.

Greenville County sheriff's deputies say Zacharia Pearson took a large knife from the kitchen after he got into a fight with his 24-year-old girlfriend early Monday at a home in Piedmont and stabbed her until the knife broke. Her name has not been released.

Authorities say a neighbor came out to see what was happening and Pearson charged him with a pipe.

Deputies say the man shot Pearson twice with a concealed weapon he had a permit to carry.

Pearson is still alive as of this writing, unfortunately. Kudos to the gun owner.
