LYMAN, SOUTH CAROLINA — One bad guy had an extremely bad night after a concealed carrier returned fire on him outside a nightclub in Lyman. The bad guy in question was identified as Jody Ray Thompson, 30. He opened fire indiscriminately on several onlookers after he left a nightclub. One of the onlookers, thankfully, was carrying a concealed firearm and returned fire — striking him once in the leg.
According to WHNS News and FOX 4, Thompson got into a verbal altercation with another man outside the nightclub. Onlookers gathered and he took out a handgun and opened fire. His rounds hit three people before the fourth, a legal concealed carrier, returned fire.

“His rounds struck three victims, and almost struck a fourth victim, who in self-defense, pulled his own weapon and fired, striking Thompson in the leg,” Lt. Kevin Bobo told WHNS.
Thompson was taken to a nearby hospital to have his gunshot wound treated but will be facing multiple counts of attempted murder as well as possession of an unlawful firearm. The concealed carrier, who allegedly cooperated fully with authorities, will face no charges.
