Greenwood Man Gets 70 Years for Shooting and Robbery

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The man accused in last October’s armed robbery, and shooting at the Scott’s Gas Station in Greenwood has pled guilty and has been sentenced to 70 years behind bars. 39-year-old Waltdrakus Hunter had been charged with attempted capital murder, and armed robbery as a violent habitual offender in the incident in which police say he entered the gas station in the early morning hours, pulled out a handgun and shot 21-year-old Dekerus Williams, a customer, in the side before robbing the cashier. Hunter made off with a little over $500 but was captured just 10 minutes later by Greenwood police. Williams was paralyzed in the shooting.
