Dayton Oh Feb 16 2013 A security guard died Friday morning after suffering a heart attack while on duty at a Dayton club.
The guard, Willie Williams Jr., 32, was working at Vault on North Jefferson Street when he had the medical emergency. Around 2 a.m., workers at the club were attempting to evacuate it so medics could assist Williams, but as medics were trying to make entry, the occupants were trying to get out of the club and several scuffles ensued.
Firefighters and medics were not involved in those scuffles.
One person, Branden D. Smith, 25, was Tased for being disorderly, officials said. He faces a misdemeanor charge of misconduct at the scene of an emergency.
Club officials told News Center 7 they tried to evacuate the club as soon as Williams went down. General Manager LaToya Washington criticized the response time from safety services.
“After about 10 minutes of waiting, I called back again and they said paramedics were on the way,” she said.
A review of regional dispatch center records showed the first firefighters were sent to the club at 1:51 a.m. and they requested help four minutes later. Two minutes after that, an ambulance crew asked for police assistance.
Police attributed any delays to officers having to control Smith. Police said after he was Tased, medics were able to start providing care for Williams.
“Customers need to know that when the fire people are coming in, they need to get out of the way,” said Dayton police Sgt. Damon Caster.
The incident remains under investigation.

“The security guard came to the door as he exited his truck. They were in a foot or so of each other apparently. He was shot at point blank range. There was one shot to the chest and another one to the eye,” said Police Chief Larry Blagg.
Police say Pennington shot Cooper twice. Cooper was shot once in the chest and once in the head. Police say Pennington then got back into his truck and drove himself to the Trumann Police Department and turned himself in to police.
Trumann Police Chief Larry Blagg told Region 8 News that Cooper was pronounced dead just before 5:00 a.m. Police are still investigating this crime and although they don’t know the motive at this time, Blagg said it seems to be very deliberate.
“I don’t think it’s a random act that he just came out and found somebody to shoot,” said Blagg.
Another security guard who works with the security company Securitas told Region 8 news that Cooper had worked there for about a year. Police Chief Blagg said that the suspect had moved to Trumann working for Columbia Forrest Products for about a year. Blagg said that Pennington is a member of upper management for the company working as an engineer.
Blagg said according to Pennington’s boss, he never caused any problems. This shooting is a shock to the company as well as the suspect’s family.
At his probable cause hearing Monday afternoon Pennington was officially charged with one count of Capital Murder and no bond was set. Pennington will be held at the Poinsett County Jail. His next day in court will be on June 23rd.

Gresham Police arrested an officer with the private Wackenhut security company on Saturday night, charging him with burglarizing the offices he was employed to protect.
Detectives charged Matthew Maedche, 20, of Portland, with 16 counts of second-degree burglary and three counts of attempted second-degree burglary
Police detectives had set up surveillance at the Adventist Health Medical Plaza, 831 NW Council Dr., in Gresham, after a string of burglaries that began Sept. 13.
Gresham Police Detective Tony Cobb suspected somebody with access to the buildings was involved because in many of the burglaries, only interior doors were tampered with.

Maedche is being held at the county jail pending a bond hearing.
