A Waffle House customer with a legally concealed weapon saved the day by shooting an armed robber at a Waffle House in North Charleston, South Carolina.

The customer, who remains unidentified, opened fire on the armed suspect around 5 a.m. Saturday morning, according to The Post and Courier. The suspect, who police have also not named, was rushed to the hospital where he died from his wounds.

The customer’s decision to use force drew praise from employees. “He saved us, that’s what he did,” a Waffle House employee said(RELATED: Hillary Clinton Blames NRA For Mass Shootings) 

One police officer on the scene speaking on the condition of anonymity said the customer’s actions are an example of how guns in the right hands can save people, saying, “It’s says something about firearms, for good people with firearms being in the right hands.” (RELATED: Burglar Picks The Wrong House To Rob, Gets Shot [VIDEO])

“No one was hurt, which is the best part. No one was injured – besides the suspect,” Waffle House Division Manager Brandon Rogers said.
