Sunday Tribune, Chicago, IL

Sunday, January 1, 1961

Chicago grocer Stanley Wasik eyed the three men who entered his store and found it suspicious that one stayed at the door while his companions approached the counter. When the two drew guns and announced a stickup, grocer Wasik grabbed his cal. .38 pistol from under the counter and began firing. Two bandits fell critically wounded, and the lookout fled out the door.
