    Intruder Shot, Killed. Laurens SC

    Sheriff: Intruder Shot, Killed; Charges Unlikely

    Coroner: Suspect Died At Scene

    LAURENS, S.C. -- A Laurens County man told deputies that after he heard a noise early Tuesday morning, he shot and killed an intruder.

    Sheriff Ricky Chastain said the man, who lives across the street and who was working on the home, had decided to spend the night there.

    Chastain said, "The home was being remodeled, so it possibly could've appeared no one was living there or no one was there."

    The man said he was asleep when heard a noise coming from the living room area. He said he went into the living room armed with a shotgun. He said when the intruder startled him, he fired two shots at him, hitting him in the stomach and neck area.

    The coroner's office said that the man, later identified as 20-year-old Lamont Carton Darden, broke into the home on Stevens Street around 12:30 a.m.

    Darden died as a result of those injuries.

    Chastain said it seems unlikely that the man would be charged in the shooting.

    "In our opinion, from the information we have so far, it appears the homeowner was protecting himself and his property from intruders," he said.

    The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division are investigating the shooting.

    Chastain said, "I think the community up there's pretty shaken up as far as what actually transpired last night."

    One less criminal society has to worry about. Even better that he's dead; to me that sends the message to other criminals that this line of work is dangerous and they'd better think twice before choosing it. Furthermore, because he's dead, taxpayers won't be paying to feed, clothe, and house him.

    I agree! Each time a BG bites the dust permanently, it saves us tax money.

    I agree with all. as the song goes.. another one bites the dust... and what I mean by that is, another BG. It's good he decided to stay there that night and that he was prepared by being armed.
