Man who shot robber at AA gets gun back

COLUMBIA — A South Carolina man who shot and killed an armed robber at an Alcoholic Anonymous gathering in Columbia has his gun back.

Police returned the .32-caliber semiautomatic pistol to Columbia lawyer James Corley.

The local prosecutor said this month that Mr. Corley's shooting of 18-year-old Kayson Helms of Edison, N.J., was justifiable self-defense of himself and others at the center.

The 61-year-old Mr. Corley has a concealed-weapons permit.

Police say Mr. Helms already had robbed one person at gunpoint and was about to rob others when Mr. Corley shot him.
