Followup SC: Fatal Shooting Determined to be Self Defense
Williams left the party in Ladson and was dropped off at 1729 Pearson St. because he was afraid to go home after the argument. Benjamin showed up at the Pearson Street address and shot at Williams. Williams pulled a gun, returned fire and fled on foot. Both firearms were recovered.
“Following consultation with the solicitor’s office, it has been determined that this was a case of self-defense and no charges will be filed against Williams (who) was not prohibited in carrying a firearm and legally purchased the weapon,” Pryor said in an email.
