CHESNEE, S.C. —
A former employee of an Upstate funeral home tried to ambush employees Thursday morning, but his AR-15 jammed and the only shot fired missed, the sheriff says.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said the former employee, later identified Gregory Scott Greene, 51, of Inman, worked at Eggers Funeral Home in Chesnee until he quit about a month ago. Wright said Greene had a duplicate key made before he turned his key back in to
Wright said Greene went to the funeral home just before 9 a.m., turned off the alarm and waited for other employees to come to work.

Greene tried to fire the AR-15 at the employees, but the gun jammed, Wright said. Greene pulled the magazine, put it back in and fired once, but the shot did not hit anyone.

Greene was still at the funeral home when deputies arrived and was taken into custody without incident, Wright said. “God was looking out for everyone involved, including our guys,” Wright said.

1. Anyone that uses God as a reason for not being shot is clueless. nt

5. I want to just slap people when they say things like that.

I cannot go to funerals. I am far too likely to say something rude to any minister, priest, etc.

Whenever I hear about how great God was at sparing the lives of people during some natural disaster or event like this I just want scream.
