Instead, he shot back.

Williams, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled out a .380-caliber handgun while two 19-year-old men tried to rob the Palms Internet Café last Friday night. He fired at the men, who were both shot and quickly fled the scene.

Ocala.com reports that Williams is not likely to be charged with firing at the suspects, identified as Davis Dawkins and Duwayne Henderson, because of a Florida law that allows people to use deadly force if they feel they're in danger of death of serious injury.

The entire incident was caught on surveillance camera as Dawkins and Henderson burst into the shop with a gun and a baseball bat.
