COLUMBIA, S.C. - A visitor to a Columbia Alcoholics Anonymous center on College Street shot and killed an 18-year-old man who tried to rob AA members at the center late Saturday night, police said Sunday morning.

"Gimme what you got," witnesses quoted the suspected robber as saying when he entered the AA building at 2015 College St. about 10:48 p.m. Saturday. They said he brandished a .25 caliber handgun.

At that point, one AA visitor dropped something on the floor -- possibly his wallet -- and another AA visitor pulled a pistol out and shot the suspect several times in the chest, police said.

The suspect was taken to Palmetto Health Richland where he was pronounced dead at 11:24 p.m. Saturday night.

The person who fired his weapon and killed the suspect had a concealed weapons permit, police said.

Police are not releasing the name of the dead man pending notification of next of kin.

Police did say Sunday morning that the dead man is apparently from out of state.

Police declined to release the name of the man who did the shooting, saying an investigation is continuing.

Chalk one up for the good guys!

Dang it, the BG can't go to the convenience store, the donut shop, or the car wash, and now he can't go to AA. Let's make more places unsafe for them Bad Guys! But then, he DID tell the CCW to "Gimme what you got."

Somebody thank the shooter for me.
