71-year-old patron Samuel Williams drew his own handgun when the two masked men, one with a baseball bat and the other with a hand gun, barged into the Palms.

Just as the robbers demanded the approximately 30 citizens to get on the floor and hand over their money, Williams rose to the rescue, shooting and injuring the criminals as they fled for the door.

The robbers scrambled to a car parked nearby and drove away from the scene.
