COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A club owner shot and killed an intruder who broke
into his business, authorities say.
Harold Thomas Weed, 21, was shot in the face early Thursday morning
inside The Foxhole club, authorities said.
Club owner Leslie G. Snider, 58, told Richland County deputies he was
getting ready to close the club when he heard someone kick in a side
door, sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Chris Cowan said.
Snider told deputies he never spoke to Weed before firing one shot,
Weed was on parole for two aggravated assault convictions in September
2002, prosecutor John Meadors said.
Deputies don't plan to charge Snider. Meadors said prosecutors will
review the case to determine whether Snider acted reasonably.
The club previously had been burglarized three times in the last year,
including separate incidents last month and in June, Cowan said.
