A good Samaritan who was picking up people’s tabs and giving out money at a Florida Waffle House was shot dead Sunday in a fight, officials said.
Craig Brewer, 41, was shot in the head and killed at about 3 a.m. during an “altercation” at a Gainesville Waffle House, according to a statement from the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office. Brewer was picking up customers’ tabs and handing out $20 bills, and a woman who was there with Hicks got angry because Brewer hadn’t paid for her meal. Hicks confronted Brewer and started arguing with him, and then left the restaurant to get a handgun. Hicks went back inside and started a physical fight with Brewer. The suspect took the handgun from his pants and shot Brewer in the head,” police said.
